‘Celebrating The Youth...’

Mountain Mail Reports

According to its web site, the 55th Catron County Fair is touting itself as “celebrating the youth of our county.”
And the fair to be held at the Catron County Fairgrounds in Reserve will be doing exactly that with a variety of activities for children of the community.
“We are very excited about the variety of venues for the Catron County Fair,” fair coordinator Lisa Way said.
With an increase of 40 vendors, there is sure to be something for everybody over the five day event.
“There will be funnel cakes, smoothies, fry bread, nachos, curly fries, barbeque, and many other foods for sale. Vendors will be inside one building and around the fairgrounds. Exhibits, such as crafts, 4H, horticulture, art clothing, fiber arts, and processed/preserved foods will be in the new building. We even have a mechanical bull this year,” Way said.
The fair began Wednesday and runs through Sunday.
Other events scheduled include a Western Dance, Pancake Breakfast, Barbecue, Enchilada Dinner, Junior Livestock Sale, NMRA Rodeo, Junior Rodeo, and a Team Roping Event.
