Are you a flower lover, have a green thumb, rather work in the dirt then about anything else? Well, then, you may want to participate in the Floral Department shows at the Preble County Fair.
The Preble County Fair’s Floral Department is fully engaged in helping plan and produce a fantastic Floral Show at this year’s fair.
There are no fees per entry for the two Flower Shows, held on Saturday and Wednesday of the fair, and you don’t have to know what you are going to bring until the day of the show.
You only have to buy a membership or exhibitor’s ticket for $25 (which grants you entry to the fair throughout the entire week.) You must sign up for the Floral Shows in June for either or both shows. Walk-in entries close June 21, at 1 p.m., at the Fair Office. On-line entries close Monday, July 7.
The Floral Department is especially excited about one new entry this year: Fairy Gardens.
Visit Eaton Floral at Five Points Centre on Saturday, April 26 for information and a demonstration on how to build and grow one. The demonstration begins at 2 p.m., with the opportunity to purchase supplies to make a Fairy Garden to show at the fair.
