The Washington County Fair is set to kick off on Sunday and there are many new activities being offered this year. Don Lewis with the Washington County Fair Board says some of the new activities include a sheep shearing contest on Tuesday as well as a barbecue cooking contest on Friday. He notes the cooking contest was brought back after not taking place for a couple of years.
Lewis says the Washington County Fair draws in over 10,000 in attendance with the different events that take place. He adds the Fair Board puts in many hours over the course of the year to get ready for the Fair.
