Saturday, September 10, 2016 – Glorious weather helped ensure that this year’s Harper County Fair was once again a resounding success. Held at the Harper County Fairgrounds in Buffalo, doors opened to the public at 8:00 a.m., who were then able to walk around and view each of the tremendous exhibits that had been submitted to the Fair. A huge number of exhibits were on display, including some beautiful quilts, unique artwork, wonderful photography and much more. Canned produce, pies, homegrown fruits and vegetables, along with a variety of breads were all major attractions at the Fair, not to mention the high quality of the houseplants and fresh cut flowers that were on display. This year’s exhibits were of a very high standard, and the Fair was well attended.


The livestock show, which began at 8:30 a.m., was as competitive as ever, with dozens of Hogs, Goats, Sheep and Cattle shown. Between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Northwestern Electric Cooperative provided a Hot Dog meal for the Fair visitors and exhibitors.

Held at 1:00 p.m., the annual Rinky-Dink Homemade Ice Cream contest was once again wonderful fun. This year there were six entries that were judged by Casey Murdock, along with Alan Jett and Kyle Dominick. For the second year running, Debbie Barton’s vanilla ice cream was chosen as the best in the competition, winning her the $300 prize for first place.

At 1:30 p.m. the Open Class Bike Rodeo, sponsored by Tyree Ag, was a fun event for those children who took part. As the day drew to a close, everyone was able to enjoy a free hamburger feed, provided by Buffalo Co-op and Laverne Co-op, ending what was a great day for everyone concerned.

Winners of all the events and exhibit classes at the Fair will be listed as soon as the final results becomes available.
