Getting ready for Lincoln Co. fair, butter carving competition

Posted:
LINCOLN COUNTY (WAOW) -

People in Lincoln County are gearing up for this week's 4H fair. Organizers said it's been a little hectic, after tearing down the grandstand last week. On Tuesday, workers put up six sets of temporary bleachers, with enough space to seat about 1,500 people. The temporary seats are being paid for by insurance. No decision has been made yet on a permanent replacement.

A new event this year will be the butter carving contest and many local leaders are eager to dig in.

"I've heard the fire chief, the police chief, the city attorney, all these guys are going to be carving out of butter to see who's the best carver in the community," said Lincoln County Fair board director Dale Christiansen.

Organizers said they're optimistic they will be ready to go when the fair starts this week. For more information about the week's events, you can click on this link.
