Barbour County Fair Third Grade Day
With regret, the Barbour County Fair will not hold a Third Grade Day in 2021. We look forward to the event returning in 2022.
For many year's the Fair has set a day aside to give the 3rd grade students in Barbour County an opportunity to visit, learn, and enjoy all the events offered on 3rd GRADERS’ DAY. First they will be guided through several learning adventures of the days past, such as the Mouse Run School House. Be all a buzz with Bee Keepers in action while experiencing the honey being made by all the worker bees. Witness the intricate mechanic's of the Grist Mill grinding out delicious, goodness known as corn meal. Students will see, smell and maybe even get a lil taste of homemade apple butter churning in a large kettle above a hot, bed of amber colored embers on an open fire. They will have the chance to walk through all the barns, and all the exhibits while learning about livestock and agriculture. They can take a few minutes to rest as they ride on the horse-drawn wagons around the fair grounds. Eat, play, learn, and exercise all the while just being a kid. When finishing lunch they will participate in interactive educational fun. The students will be able to enjoy carnival rides, towards the end of their visit. Then away they will go on the buses home with goodie bags in hand.
