Fair starts next week!
August 9, 2018
The Wahkiakum County Fair Board has dedicated this year's fair to Neil and Jean Beerbower. The pair have been volunteering at the Wahkiakum County Fair for decades. They have spent many hours fundraising for the fair and the recent bull riding event, getting the exotic barn ready, or painting, putting in insulation, and cleaning up the grounds.
Jean says between the two of them, they volunteered 100 hours last July alone. As for this year, "the biggest thing was getting the bull riders here," Jean said. "And they're coming back!"
