Family fun at the fair

Shuler family and friends laying with their animals

Area youth were showcased at the Berrien County Youth Fair in Berrien Springs, Michigan, which took place Monday, Aug. 15 through Friday, Aug.19.

Children participated in a variety of activities, including equine events, livestock judging, crafts, baking, floral arrangements and educational contests. Participants work all year on their projects and raising their assorted animals, which includes bunnies, goats, calves, hogs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and dogs. Many were awarded with Championship and Grand Championship trophies, as well as the thrill of participating and socializing with their peers.

The Zeigler, Seifert and Kaminski farms in Three Oaks and Union Pier and the Shuler Dairy Farm in Baroda were all represented in many categories, as was the River Valley Wranglers 4-H Club. All week, there were Grandstand performances, including a circus and carnival ride, games of chance and food of all varieties.

Established in 1945, the fair displays the work of Berrien County youth exhibitors who are ages 5-20 years old.
