The Morning Thing is celebrating the Knox County Fair this week by sharing a Fair Fave 5 every day!
On Tuesday (7/26), we shared (more than 5) of our favorite Fair participants.
Here are some of your favorites:
Robin McClay – My favorite fair participant is this years queen Holly McClay. Holly works hard on all of her projects but always finds time to help others. She begins every fair week attending the fair worship service with her family and does her best to follow and represent Christ through out the week.

Tomi Whittington Ward – My favorite fair participant would be my daughter , Reagan! She is showing broilers ( meat chickens) She has taken great care of her birds this year and we are very proud of her!
Jill Spearman Macklin – My favorite fair participants are my nieces and nephews who show hogs!!! And my brother who races his horses. I have 16 nieces and nephews who have all been fair exhibitors over the last 30 plus years. My dad, great uncle, uncles, and brother have all raced horses for years and years. My five brothers and sisters have all been in 4-H and or FFA and have all shown animals at the fair. Needless to say, my family enjoys the fair!
Ruth Robey Frady – I loved being a fair participant when I was a young girl in the 60’s. 4-H sewing groups were extremely popular, with countless booths filling up the huge project building. I proudly belonged to the Jolly Juniors 4-H Club, who were always winning honorable mentions with their elaborate displays protected behind that ever present chicken wire! I once tied for first place to take my lounge wear to the State Fair! With complimentary tickets all week long, this Jolly Junior practically lived at the Knox County Fairgrounds.(checking out all of the cute guys up in the livestock barns, of course)!
