Events for this year's Sheridan County Fair start Friday at the Sheridan County Extension office, and Jamie Ringley, who's facilities manager of the county fairgrounds, says he's excited about the prospects for a good fair this year.


Another special feature will be the return of Krystal Raley with an equine therapy demonstration. In addition to the jousting, which starts at 6 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, CHAPS will present a demonstration at 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 3. There also will be a community dance on Aug. 4, starting at 8 p.m. or after the beef show that night.

The first events, at the extension office, are the fabric and fashion interview judging and fashion review judging. Starting with the CHAPS jousting, all events move to the fairgrounds.

Ringley said numbers are up this year in beef, dogs and goats, and are about the same last year in sheep and swine. All shows are open to the public, and the fairgrounds will officially open to the public on Thursday, Aug. 3. Other shows include cats, horses, poultry, rabbits and alpacas.

The fair will end Aug. 7 with the market livestock sale starting at 4 p.m.
