"Let’s Stirrup Some Memories" is the theme of the 93rd Annual Deschutes County Fair, and crowds are doing just that.

 

Fair Director Ross Rogers says there are so many exciting attractions and events that people are buzzing about including the Family Fun Zone.  "The Family Fun Zone is over an acre of ground, just full of activities.  Everything in the Family Fun Zone area is absolutely free with gate admittance. That means all the games, all the prizes are free. The pony rides are free, the petting zoo is free, the dock dogs -Dog Jumping Championship trials are free in the Family Fun Zone."

 

Rogers says the big concerts are very popular also; and they are free, but you do need to get a pass to enter.

 

He also reminds people that traffic does get very heavy around 4 p.m., and the shuttle they offer is convenient and will take that traffic frustration away.

 

You can find the shuttle locations and schedules on the Fair website.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
