Ms. Buzz being a city bee there are few fun animal shows I love to check out at The Linn County Fair every year in Central City. Picture in your head calves that are being parade around a show ring by kids 8 years old or younger. You look at the calves and you have to take a second look since some of them are dressed up in costumes or painted. Then you realize you are watching the Kiddie Kalf Show at the Linn County Fair. Or switch that around they are sheep instead of calves, then you are watching the Little Shepherd Show
The Kiddie Kalf Show is Saturday July 11th starting approximately at noon in the cattle ring. If you are interested in showing in the show it is open to youth 8 years and under. Dairy or beef calves are allowed. The calves age should be May 1, 2009 to newborn. Check-in times are Friday July 10th 9am to noon or Saturday July 11th 8:30-9:30. You are STRONGLY encouraged to use this years’ theme “Going Green” to costume themselves and their calf. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded to all participants. A best costume entry will be awarded. Calves may go home after the show. You may preregister by calling Kathy Clemens at 377-0949 or at the fair 4-H office.
Kiddie Kalf Show 2008
Little Shepherd Contest will be Friday July 10th after the sheep show, approximately 1:30pm. All kids under 10 years old is welcomed to participate. Prizes will be awarded to all participants. You are STRONGLY encouraged to use this years’ theme “Going Green” to costume themselves and their lamb. If questions please email Jennifer Dunn email@example.com.
If you come to watch and see what costumes the calves or sheep will be in this year I would encourage you bring your camera, kids can be creative!
