WORTHINGTON — It is 4-H non-livestock entry day at the fair today, which means the kick-off to the great Nobles County get-together is soon to be here.

While the fair officially starts on Thursday, 4-H’ers will be busy getting their arts and crafts, photography, shop and a whole host of other projects judged this morning and into the afternoon.

On Wednesday, anyone who is not in the 4-H program is invited to enter projects in the Nobles County Open Class division. Everything from foods to fruits and vegetables, grains, photography, fine arts and needlework will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., while plants and flowers may be entered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The 4-H Dog Show begins at 8 a.m. Wednesday in the Hockey Arena on the fairgrounds. Spectators from the public are invited and encouraged to attend.

Thursday is a busy day at the Nobles County Fairgrounds in Worthington with all 4-H livestock arriving from 8 to 11 a.m. The 4-H foodstand will open Thursday morning, and all 4-H exhibit buildings will open at 10 a.m., with the commercial buildings to open at noon.

Livestock shows on Thursday include the 4-H Dairy Show in Olson Arena at noon, the 4-H Rabbit Show in the rabbit building at 1:30 p.m., and the 4-H Sheep Show in Olson Arena at 5 p.m., followed by the open class sheep show.

Returning for the second time is the Apple Pie Baking Contest. Entries of homemade apple pies must be in by 11:45 a.m. Thursday, and may be registered on the west end of the Fine Arts building. The entry must include the entire pie, and it can either be a two-crust or crumb topping variety.
