Brown's Beacon Beat 8/28/14

Well, another Monroe County Fair is in the books. I didn’t get to attend as much as I would have liked with all the work that needed to be done at the Beacon. I made it out for the animal sales on Thursday. The plan was to take some photos for the paper between sales and during the large animal sales. Well, it started raining, and that plan went out the window.

But, it did work out for the best. I went out Friday for pics. It was a beautiful day, and I had a good time for the couple hours I was there.

I must admit, to my shame, that I had never ever attended the youth pedal pull. I did this year, and I was floored by the crowd. I walked into the Rabbit and Poultry Barn expecting a handful of people. Instead, the place was packed!

It was fun watching the little kids participate. Some were shy, some weren’t. Some went far, others didn’t. One little girl just basically posed on the tractor so her mom could take a picture. Regardless of how they did, every kid I saw participating had a lot of fun. The crowd was great too, cheering them on and encouraging them along.
