Three representatives of the North Central Missouri Fair addressed the Trenton Rotary Club meeting yesterday.
Remarks were given by Rick Hull,Michelle Shaw, and Les Spickard as they addressed the grandstand entertainment, livestock shows, and Rock Barn entries.The fair is July 30th through August 3rd.
Hull also discussed the decision to allow beer sales in the grandstandÂ area only, noting that in visits with other communities, it producedÂ additional revenues. Hull explained more revenues are needed to provide what he called bigger andÂ better entertainment at the fair in future years. Hull said IDâ€™s will be checked and only persons with specially designated armbands will beÂ able to
purchase beer. Law enforcement and other personnel will beÂ present to monitor the sales which are restricted to the only the grandstand area. He added no one will be allowedÂ to bring coolers into the grandstand area, including the pitsÂ during the racing and demolition derby.
A new event this year at the North Central Missouri Fair will be a baby show the morning of Saturday August 3rd at the courtyard. The event is sponsored byÂ the Trenton FFA. Children ages newborn to four years will be eligibleÂ to participate. Boys and girls are to be judged together. Thereâ€™s a one dollar entry fee. Trophies will be given for the first, second, and third-place winners. All participants receive ribbons. The FFA Chapter plans to use proceeds from the baby show toward the purchase of diapersÂ for families in the Trenton area.
Entries are needed for the July 30th fair parade. It will travel the usual parade Route in Trenton starting at 5:30 that evening.
