Right this way little piggy

Melanie Mercado gets her barrow moving with the help of buddy Emma Marth during the Champion Drive: Special Edition at the 151st Washington County Fair. The purpose of the event is to provide special needs youth in the county the opportunity to participate first-hand in a livestock show experience.

The “Oldest county fair in Texas” released a new schedule as the community grapples with the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to a social media post Tuesday from the Washington County Fair Association, the fair will begin on Friday, Sept. 11 with the rabbit sift. On Sept. 12, the fair will continue with the rabbit show, commercial steer grading, the colt show and the scramble heifer show. Sunday’s events will include the bucket calf show and carcass hog weigh-in.
