23 and Proud!

SUBLETTE COUNTY – Things are heating up – literally and so to speak – at the Sublette County Fairgrounds this weekend.

Wednesday, 4-Hers brought in their livestock to be weighed and ultra-sounded, groomed and pampered. Kids from 4-H clubs all over Sublette County prepared to show their cats, dogs, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs and steers at different contests throughout the next several days, with market and showmanship competitions.

Sheep, goats, swine and lambs were judged on Thursday and Friday are the market beef and rabbit shows. Saturday at 9 a.m. is the Sublette Bred & Raised Beef Show, then the Junior Livestock Auction starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Event Center.

The Lynn Thomas Memorial Art Show & Sale in the Community Hall displays a breathtaking range of watercolors, oils and pastels in contemporary and traditional styles, with the centerpiece of 10 “old barn” paintings for the Sublette Centennial celebration. Judges hadn’t awarded prizes yet so part of the anticipation will be to see which artworks are selected. The show closes Saturday after a “meet the artist” reception from 4-5 p.m.

Displays of beautiful quilts, recycled art, clear jellies, leatherwork and many 4-H and senior projects are highlighted in the Commercial Building. Entertainment is ongoing with The Farmer’s Daughter Show, Rock Bottom Boys, Wildlife Wendy, Lanky the Clown and the Wild West Shootout. Friday night’s concert at 7 p.m. features Kaleb Austin and The Rock Bottom Boys on the free stage. Saturday evening starts with the annual cornhole tournament at 5:30 p.m. and pulls at 7 p.m. in the Ag Center.
