It’s no doubt these exhibitors and all other participants of the Union County Fair slept hard last night as the fair finished for another year. But, for most of these kids, they were right back up bright and early to do their chores or to start brainstorming their next project.

The Union County Fair would like to thank all of the kids and families that worked so hard to make the fair a success and to wish you all that are moving on to the shootout or Iowa State Fair the best of luck! See you back here in 2020...Until then, keep #raisingtraditions
