“The demolition derby. It’s all about the derby - the mud flinging and the fires. You don’t want anyone to get hurt, but the element of danger makes it exciting.”

“I always enjoyed the livestock competitions, especially the pigs. My mother grew up on a farm that only had pigs for pets, so there was always a fondness for them in our household. Apparently they’re very smart animals.”

“Usually the derby, but the kids love the tractor pull.”

“I’ll go with the derby, but I like to go for the food, mostly the funnel cakes, and the entertainment.”

Bucket Calf show. The kids are so great handling the calves. That and the poultry show.

I love everything about a county fair. The competitions of various kinds, the prize animals, the crafts and the food. I love to watch the young people, farm kids, groom their calves, cows, steers and then show them. I especially like to see them show their horses in the ring. The horse is the most magnificant creature on this earth. Next to county fairs, I really love a gymcana. The show jumpers. There is a park just south of Calgary that holds 4 events in a summer and the show jumpers come from all over the world to compete. It is totally wonderful to see those marvelous animals, so dignified and gracious and elegant in their leaps over bars and hedges. It seems so effortless for them. they just seem to glide over. A sight to behold with awe.
