LOWVILLE — The second day of the Lewis County Fair was dedicated to children and the dairy industry.
While these two categories seem, for the most part, unrelated, the fair found a clever way to bring them together: ice cream.
With the help of the Lewis County Dairy Princess Committee, free ice cream sundaes were available Wednesday to all fairgoers.
One giant sundae was prepared, compete with hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream and cherries, and was doled out in individual bowls until it was gone.
To help further promote the “Children’s Day” theme, the fair held a bicycle raffle, organized a watermelon-eating contest and offered discounted ticket wristbands, making it easy for children to enjoy all of this year’s impressive rides and attractions.
At the Baby Show, even the youngest fairgoers had a chance to get involved in the festivities. The pageant gave mothers and fathers a chance to share their babies with the community, and allowed some young participants to earn their very first fair ribbons.
Later in the evening, the fair hosted a 4x4 truck pull, the “Barnyard Olympics,” and a musical performance by rock group Moonshiner.
The Lewis County Fair continues through Saturday.
