Officials Prepare for Mesa County Fair
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- It's a yearly tradition, and an attraction that draws in residents from all across western Colorado. It's the Mesa County Fair and all the fun starts on Tuesday.
However, the last portion of the fair's kick-off event, the “Open Class Portion,” took place on Monday.
Whereas the non-perishable items were entered this weekend, officials collected the perishable items of the competition on Monday.
There’s nearly 12 categories of the competition, and in their quilting portion, there's 80 pieces alone.
Officials say it's a fun learning process for everyone involved, especially the kids.
“It’s an expansion of the 4H process,” said Lina Scheve, volunteer. “The kids learn to take care of animals. They learn quilting skills. They learn sewing skills. They learn thinking outside the box.”
All of these items at the Community Building starting Tuesday morning at 11.
The prices of the fair are below:
Adult: $6/Day $20/Week
Senior: $4/Day $15/Week
Child (3-12): $2/Day $7/Week
