Back to HomeFeature Article - August 27, 2009 Parham Fair this weekendSubmitted by the Parham Agricultural Society
Parham Fair has its roots in Agriculture and though we have expanded, our focus is still on highlighting agriculture. Friday night features the ever-popular Horse Pull, with our local favorite, Bill Lee, an annual participant. Come see the teams as they pull the stone boat to become the Champion Team of the night. Saturday, in the morning, there is a Cattle Show, with local 4-H clubs, and Poultry and Horse Shows all day. Have you seen the Dolly Parton run yet? Watch for it Saturday afternoon in the games in the horse ring.
We will have Steam Engines Display all weekend and an ATV pull on Saturday night. Register at the fair. Show up with your ATV and have some fun.
In the palace, there are agricultural exhibits along with crafts, children’s exhibits, vegetable and baking. You could spend hours in there. New this year, the greased pig contest. Youth between 7-9 and 10-12 may sign up for the contest on Saturday at 6pm. Be sure to wear old clothes. Stop by the Parham Fair Food booth for some great food. Proceeds of the booth help fund the fair. Come for the entertainment, food and midway. A good time is sure to had by all for just $5\day; weekend passes $12.
