The annual event that allows 4-Her’s to showcase their hard work is the county fair.
The Bourbon County Fair is July 12-20 at the fairgrounds located across from Fort Scott Community College on South Horton.
The week includes animal shows, a fashion revue, a livestock sale, open class and 4-H exhibits along with grandstand events.
New this year, the Bourbon County Fair is hosting a professional rodeo at 8 p.m. on July 12-13 at the fairgrounds, by the Hampton Rodeo Company, a consistent top-rated International Pro Rodeo Association (IPRA) contractor.
“The big thing is the professional rodeo we are having Friday and Saturday starting the fair,” Diane Brillhart, treasurer for the fair board, said.
Tickets are $10 adults, $5 youth and five and under, free is purchased before the rodeos, $12 and $7 at the gate.
There will be a calf scramble, bull poker, beer garden and a live band, in addition.
Contact Steward Gulager, 620-215-5302 for more information.
Brillhart also encourages the public to notice the newly painted sheep and dairy barns.
“Thanks to a Fort Scott Area Community Foundation Grant and the Bourbon County Jail Inmates, we were able to paint the Sheep and Dairy Barn,” Brillhart said.
