Weld Fair Royalty kick off the county fair countdown

Posted

The Weld County Fair Royalty kicked off the countdown to the county fair on July 14, presenting copies of the 104th Weld County fair book to County Commissioners.

"Agriculture is the fabric of our lives and of our communities here in Weld County," said Weld County Chair Scott James. "Thank you for carrying on this tradition and being the face of agriculture for our county."

The Weld County Fair runs July 23-Aug. 3 in Greeley.

The royalty court presents a copy of the fair book to commissioners each year, detailing the Weld County events throughout the county and around the state. It's considered a tradition, according to county officials.

The fair royalty court also participates in the parade and hosted the Royalty for a Day program on July 24 to inspire the youth in Weld County that there is an opportunity to become fair Royalty.

The fair queen and her attendants are at all competitions throughout the fair week, handing out ribbons.

This year's fair queen is Abby Perez of Keenesburg, an officer on the Colorado Future Farmers of America (FFA) executive committee. Perez will also show horses, pigs, and goats at the fair.

Town of Mead resident Sheridan McBee is the runner-up. She's vice president of the Tailtwisters  4-H club. She is a reporter for the Saint Vrain Valley FFA chapter. McBee also shows horses, dogs, and market lambs. She also competes in Archery.

The two attendants on the royalty court are Avery Loveland from Loveland and Caitie Holcomb of Gilcrest. Loveland is with the Range Runners 4-H club, and she will be showing her market goats, market turkeys, and chickens, as well as entering her canning.

Holcomb, president of the Range Runners 4-H club, will show her market cattle and breeding sheep.
