The 2014 San Benito County Fair!

After a week of posting photos of our county fair from past years,  I now bring you a few photos of some of the neat things that the Husband and I saw yesterday at this year's fair. I'll eventually post an album of more photos at Facebook.

Today is the last day of the fair. It's on until 7 p.m. at Bolado Park, about 8 miles south of Hollister. Click here for the entertainment schedule.

By the way, I'm linking up with Sundays in My City, hosted by Unknown Mami. Click here to check out what's happening in other cities on this fine Sunday.

The San Benito County Historical Society display.

The 4-H member who raised this beauty sure knew what she or he was doing.

The gorgeous quilting corner.

Future Farmers of America and 4-H members sold the cows, sheep,
pigs, and goats they raised at the livestock auction at the fair.

The ever familiar Future Farmers of America jacket.

Pigs can so fly? At least over these hurdles.
Who knew they could move so quickly!

Board of Supervisor Anthony Bothelo was one of several officials
who read to the children in the storybook corner.

Check out the handcrafted guitar made from a cigar box!

Funnel cakes, droooooool.

    1. I appreciate the offer. I'll be sure to let you know.

  2. I love Country fairs! There is so much to see and do. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

  3. Looks like a wonderful county fair. I didn't know pigs could jump. The quilting looked really interesting too (I love quilting). Visiting from Sunday's in my city.

    1. I didn't know pigs could jump, too. Those guys and gals sped by very quickly. Zoooommmm! Was that a pig that ran by me?

  4. Lots to see at the fair!.And it's great that you had your camera with you. I love the quilts!

    1. Every year I get inspired to make a quilt. Maybe this time I will and enter it into the fair.
