TRINITY — Grace Tullos showed her Grand Champion steer through tears as it sold for more than $10,000 during Saturday’s Junior Livestock Sale, part of the 74th annual Trinity Community Fair.
Other emotions — laughter, screams of joy mixed with a little fear — rang through the Midway during what is called “the last free fair in Texas.”
Publicity Co-Chair Tally Stout said the community truly exemplified the motto of “Country Pride, Community Wide” this year.
Early figures show the auction sale total was $139,075, and there was an increase in booth vendors and parade entries; the carnival was a main attraction; the entertainment created great sounds; and the crowd beamed with excitement, Stout said.
“Thanks to everyone that came out and helped make the 2023 fair a success,” she said. “See you at the Crawfish Boil in May.”
