County 4-H Fair is off and running

     The Adams County 4-H Fair kicked off its five-day run under sunny skies and mostly pleasing temperatures Sunday, with a busy day of activities planned.
    Among the more entertaining and highly-attended events was a greased pig contest, held in the livestock show arena. Young fairgoers had their hands full — or perhaps more correctly had them empty — chasing the slippery little porkers around the ring.
    Various livestock judging competitions were on tap this morning at the fair, with a grand champions award presentation planned for 6:30 p.m. today.
    The highlight of Tuesday’s events at the fair will be the annual 4-H parade, which starts at 7 p.m. and winds through the town of Monroe. Following the parade this year’s 4-H Ambassador will be crowned.
    The fair ends Thursday, with the annual livestock auction beginning at 4 p.m.
