The fair is a time for the 4-H'ers to present the results of their hard work on both individual and group projects. The North Shore 4-H Club cleaned up the veteran's section of the Lakeview Cemetery for their Community Pride project which they will be taking to the state fair.

The club also worked together on a pergola that now stands outside of the 4-H building at the Lake County Fairgrounds. This project was not for competition, but served as a thank-you to the Lake County Fair Board. The club will be working on another pergola to stand on the opposite side of the building next summer.

North Shore 4-H Club leader Curt Backen is particularly proud of the group's hard work this year. He said, "All of the kids from 6 years old to 20 are hard workers. The first thing is community, after that they take care of their projects, and we get a lot of state winners here in Lake County."

New at the Lake County Fair this year, the Midway is filled with inflatables rather than carnival rides. Friday is Kid's Day and the fair continues through the weekend. A full schedule of events can be found here.

Gate admission is free for kids under 6, $5 for ages 6 and older, and $3 over 65 and for military with a valid ID.
