The Delta County Fair kicks off on Saturday at the fairgrounds in Hotchkiss. The theme of this year’s Delta County Fair is “Country Pride, County Wide.” That sense of community and pride will be on full display at the Fairgrounds in Hotchkiss with 4-H exhibits and Junior Rodeo on Saturday. On Sunday there will be horse events in both arenas, and Monday night at the fair will feature the Team Roping-Saddle Shootout event. On Tuesday there will be an antique tractor pull and Thursday night features the popular Demolition Derby at the Rodeo Arena. Delta County fair Chairman Eddie Clement says there will be plenty of food and drink, including the Beer Gardens, and lots of family fare at this year’s 2013 Delta County Fair.
Clement adds that the Fair Parade will happen in downtown at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The fair wraps up on Sunday morning with an FFA Pancake Breakfast at the fairgrounds and collection of Premium Money from successful livestock bidders.
