Dozens of kids descended on the fairgrounds for daycare morning Thursday, Aug. 9, at the Stevens County Fair.

Nick Milbrandt, agriculture instructor and Morris Area High School FFA adviser, said at least 180 kids had registered for the annual event.

Daycare and summer program kids walked through livestock barns, learned about agriculture in the FFA/Ag barn and dairy barn, saw some exhibits and watched a magician perform.

It was also the morning for entries to be brought to the homemakers exhibit building. The morning was busy as a steady stream of entrants brought quilts, flowers, baked goods and other items.

The morning also include the annual 4-H poultry show. The afternoon and evening at the fair includes the 4-H goat show at 1:30 p.m., three shows by The Strong Man, 4-H lamb and sheep shows and the enduro race in the grandstand.
