The Sabine Parish fair had an excellent turn out this year! The crazy Louisiana weather was even quite pleasant. There were a few rides that were great for entertaining the children featuring, of course, a large Ferris wheel and carousel. The music was great and the food was even better thanks to Louie’s Pizza LLC and their delicious array of pizza recipes. Throughout the week, the Sabine Parish Fair Queens were greeting people and assisting in any way that they were able.
Hopefully, you were able to check out all of the arts and crafts in the exhibit building that our 4-H, FFA, and Cloverbuds made. Different 4-H teams from the schools in the parish were able to participate in multiple animals shows. They were encouraged to bring their pets, chickens, lambs, goats, pigs, and even their livestock to be judged based on a variety of things. Thursday, Sunshine Kids and Many Elementary brought over 150 students to pet the animals in the barn.
The Sabine Parish Fair and Rodeo Pageant will be held on Sunday, Oct. 29.
