There are open contests for kids under 16, another category for 16 year olds and over, and a Senior category, 65+. If you have made it, there is a class to enter it. There's a class for crayon (by subject), bread dough (did anyone make a dragon?), wearable art (t-shirts or shoes), any sculpture, a decorated book or scrapbook. If you have a last minute, bake a pie, preserve some fruit, or simply display your garden's finest (or biggest) gourd, pod, or flower.
As you have to pick up your entries Saturday, why not make a day of it? There's a stick horse race, a costume class for a variety of haltered animals, and a pet show. If you just finished the Doggie Fashion Show, show off your outfit to a new crowd--OR--if your pet is non-canine, here's a chance to show your goat, llama, cat, etc.

The county fair's auction on Friday night is a chance to shop-local and support local kids (contribute to their college funds). You don't need an empty freezer to bid: you may donate your purchase to charity. There are fruit pies for sale. You may join a bidder's pool and decide how to share out your purchase, or simply donate money to help these 4-H'ers recuperate the project's costs.
