On Sunday, August 3, the Emporia Farmers Market vendors will travel to the fairgrounds to participate in the all new Family Fun Day event. The market will take place at the north end of the fairgrounds and will open at 5:00pm. The community is invited to shop at the market, as well as visit the 4-H and open class exhibits in the Anderson building and walk through the livestock barns.
4-H will be providing supper from 5-7:30 pm at the Bowyer Community Building. The menu includes grilled beef kabobs, smoked corn on the cob and cotton candy. If you are so inclined, 4-H will be accepting donations to support Lyon county program as well as to help raise funds to match the $50,000 challenge gift given to Lyon County Extension to go towards support of functional improvements to the Anderson Building.
