GROVETON — The Trinity County Fair and Youth Livestock Show is slated for the third week in March in Groveton at the County Fairgrounds.
It all starts Tuesday, March 16.
The Fair will be a little different this year because of masking and social distancing requirements; board members decided to spread the show out over more days to eliminate having so many people in the barn at the same time.
Patrons also are requested to wear masks. Additionally, there will be no pet show this year.
Despite the changes, there will be a host of animals and student projects to see and a limited concession stand will offer refreshments.
Students from 4-H and FFA from Apple Springs, Centerville, Groveton, and Trinity schools are expected to compete.
Awards will be given at the conclusion of each show.
All buyers are welcome, and add-ons will be accepted.
There will be an online auction at Wal-Lee Auction Co. Inc. Online bidding starts March 15 at walleeauctioncompany.com.
For information, call Show Secretary Laura Worsham Anderson at (936) 465-0110 or President Bill Wagner at (713) 501-6733.
