MADERA - It was Madera Unified School District's Kids Day at the Madera Fair. Third graders from all of MUSD's schools were bused over to the fair grounds for a tour of the fair and special shows from the ground acts. The folks from the Chowchilla Stamped were on hand to show kids how to barrel race or rope a steer.
When you head out to the fair this weekend check out the Woman's World Building to see art pieces from each of the schools. Check out the Instagram Contest on the TV screens in the building as well as several photography contests.
You can also learn how to make a quilt from the Heart of California Quilters Guild. Friday night was the homegrown pie competition. Over a dozen pies competed for cash and ribbon prizes. Saturday night at 6:00pm the Rib competition starts.
On the main stage, Montgomery Gentry took to the stage and blew the crowds away with their brand of country music. The hour and a half concert spanned the groups entire career. Tonight glam rocker Bret Michaels will take the stage and perform hits from his solo career as well as from his time as the front man of Poison. Tickets are still available.
Today at noon is the livestock sale. Grab your checkbooks and go support the kids of FFA and 4H. The gates open for the fair at 3pm. Make sure you get your FREE Fair Photo at the Water Wheel near Lumber Town. The Madera Fair Junior Fair Board will be out there from 300pm to 6:00pm
