When is the Marias Fair?
As spring seems to making an appearance on the hi-line, Summer can’t be far behind! Every year, at about this time we start to get calls asking “When is the fair?”, so here you go…
This year’s Marias Fair will be held July 19th – July 22nd 2012. As always day one will feature a Pet and Doll Parade, usually held at 11am on Thursday on Main Street in Shelby – as always, I’m sure the parade will be filled with darling children and their pets dressed in costume.
4H is always a big part of Fair Time and this year will be no exception! Livestock is available for viewing through-out the weekend and there will be shows and sales of the animals as well. The Exhibit buildings generally open at Noon every day of the fair and stay open until 9pm, giving the public plenty of time to check out all the great crafts and other exhibits. The Midway opens at 1pm with rides and games for children of all ages!
Saturday morning will bring the big parade down Main Street. There will be musical performances, magic shows, rodeo and of course FAIR FOOD!
Be sure to show your support of the 4H kids and your community by taking time to enjoy the fair!
