In July of this year we went with some friends to the Putnam County 4-H Fair at the Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park.

According to the fair’s website:

The Putnam County 4-H Fair is a 3-day weekend of fun and learning for everyone.

Enjoy talented local musicians and dancers. Have fun with games, crafts and animal exhibits. Experience a country fair with an old-fashioned flair- the Putnam County 4-H Fair!

Relax at the Shady Grove Theater, listen to talented artists, both youth and adult, amateur and professional.

Win a ribbon! Enter your photography, quilt, baked goods, great vegetables and crafts for displaying in the big exhibit building. You don’t have to be a member of 4-H to enter.

Stop by the Master Gardener Plant Sale! Master Gardeners always have a colorful display of perennials, annuals, trees and shrubs for sale. Master Gardeners are on hand to answer your gardening questions.

Bid and win tools, paintings, tickets to shows, patio furniture and more at the Country Auction, Saturday at 2pm.

Experience Tony’s World of Science and Magic. Be curious or be skeptical, but you will definitely be amazed. Where is Tony? Just follow the sounds of children laughing.

That’s not all: Touch a Truck, Pet Shows, Food, Face Painting, Games, Civil War and Revolutionary War Encampments, Putnam History, Horse Demos, Country Pig Roast & Chicken Barbecue, Fishing Contest and more!

This seems like a pretty accurate description to me. We stopped by the exhibitions and enjoyed the fruits of the Pig Roast and Chicken.

It was also a good opportunity to try out my new camera: A Sony A77 II, which I used for all of the pictures in this series.
