Summit County Fair plans to end with a bang
Bulls, barrel racing, dance troupes, quilts, art exhibits, a hypnotist and a professional rodeo and firework show will bring an end to another season of summer fun at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Coalville Saturday.
The fair started Thursday, July 31, and has featured dog and hog shows, food booths, a youth rodeo and a variety of friendly competitions all week long.
"It’s a good tradition," fair coordinator Kellie Robinson said. "We have baking, crafts. People from all over the county come to display their talents. I’m so impressed with all the talent we have here."
Holly Moody was crowned the Summit County Fair Pageant Queen. She received a thousand dollar scholarship and Stephenie Stokes was named the Summit County Rodeo Queen.
One event not to miss, Robinson said, is the Dutch Oven Competition held Saturday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. A Dutch oven is a heavy cast-iron cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid. Participants cook everything from breakfast items to pork chops to sumptuous desserts that are later taste-test by eager judges.
Those who aren’t judges can also get a bite of the homemade goods. "It’s a good place to go if you’re hungry," Robinson said.
The biggest event Saturday is the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo that starts at 8 p.m. "One thing that sets us apart from other festivities in the area is that our rodeo is a professional rodeo," Robinson said.
For the tykes, fair organizers offered the Little Buckaroo Rodeo earlier this week. Children rode to ride sheep and calves in anticipation of the horses and bulls they will one day try to master.
People can still sign up for Saturday’s 5K run and cooking competition by calling 336-3221. Rodeo tickets are $10 for adults.

Park City officials are preparing to take what is considered to be an important step in protecting the Treasure land from wildfires. City Hall in early June requested proposals from firms interested in the work.
