The fair runs through Saturday afternoon in Skippack.
The 2011 Montgomery County 4-H Fair got underway last night with a full slate of agricultural and science exhibits intended to showcase the year's achievements for the county's 4-H members. The 4-H Mounted Drill Team led the opening ceremonies before a large and appreciative crowd. Today's attractions include a variety of livestock contests including a cattle show, a sheep show, and a poultry judging event. A silent auction will be held this evening starting at 6:30.
