Platte County State Fair | Centennial Celebration
Well, County Fair week is over and we topped it off Saturday with a parade, a yummy Birthday cake, roping competitions, livestock from the 4H club, and even stick horse racing.
Golf carts, fire trucks, folks on horseback, all were throwing candy to the kids (and some of the adults joined in to the candy grabbing as well).
These guys were great on the drums. Er, um, they used trash cans, tin cans and buckets actually. Very talented.
Then we went to the Laramie Peak Museum for birthday cake. Platte County, my home now for a year and a half, turns 100 years old this year. The parade bussed in Platte County citizens that were 90 and older and we joined them for birthday cake and lemonade after the parade. This young lady pictured above turns 100 in February.
After lunch we went to the fairgrounds for roping competitions.
The 4H students raise livestock all year to compete for the biggest and the best. Then there is an auction at the end of the week to sell their animals to the highest bidder. They raised milk cows, goats, roosters, hogs, and steers.
I love the goats!
The stick horse racing was the cutest!
