This year for the first year, Yankton County Fair will be offering not only Open Class Photography, but also Open Class Horticulture and Floriculture Classes.

The 2019 Yankton County Fair will be held Friday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 3.

Photography classes have two classes to be entered in, black and white or color, and a variety of divisions including: scenic, people, animals and birds, plants and flowers, architectural, Yankton County’s hidden beauty, and military or patriotic. Open Class photography entries are due to Yankton County Extension office by July 26.

New this year is the Horticulture and Floriculture Classes. There are many different classes to be entered in between the two classes, to name a few: cut flowers, arrangements, succulents, garden vegetables and fruits, and herbs. All entries must be dropped off at the Yankton County 4-H Grounds, Thursday, Aug. 1, between 5-6 p.m.

There is a $2 entry fee for adults and a $1 fee for youth. Rosettes will be given to Best in Show adult and youth, ribbons given to first, second and third place in each class. There will also be cash prizes awarded to first, second and third in each department.

For more specific details on Photography, Floriculture, and Horticulture Classes, stop into the Extension Office for a booklet. Get involved in your community at this year’s County Fair and enter some of your favorite snapshots, vegetables, or flowers for a chance to win.
