REPUBLIC –The 75th annual Ferry County Fair will kick off Friday and continue through Sunday at the fairgrounds, 14 Lawson Way.

The theme is “Homespun Country Fun.”

Mackenie Hutton will reign as fair queen, and Tandice Fletcher will serve as princess.

“I was born and raised in Republic and have always looked up to the fair royalty,” Hutton said. “I am so excited to finally be part of it. I have been in 4-H for 11 years now and during that time I have shown rabbits, goats, dogs, sheep, hogs and horses. I have also entered many items in the exhibit hall.

“I love 4-H and as queen, I hope to share my love for our fair with as many people as possible,” she said.

Fletcher echoed Hutton.

“Fair time has and will always be the time of year I look forward to most,” she said. “I began showing lambs as a little girl and as I got older I began to show steers.

“I hope everyone attends the Ferry County Fair and has a wonderful time enjoying all the “Homespun Country Fun” this fair has to offer.”

Pre-fair equestrian events started yesterday. The Exhibit Hall and Quilt Pavilion will be closed all day Thursday for judging.

Parking will be available on the grounds. Excesses parking will be at Republic High School, 30306 E. Highway 20; a free shuttle will be available.

Admission will be charged of those age 6 and older. Youth ages 6-17 will be admitted free on Kids Day on Friday.

Three-day passes also are available.

Passes will be available in the fair office in the red exhibit hall from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow, and at the gates through Saturday of the fair.
