"Sew It, Grow It, Show It"
The 63rd Annual Montgomery County Maryland Agricultural Fair’s theme was “It’s Udderly Terrific”. We had a wonderful fair while creating special memories. The new lawnmower racing brought new flair to opening night, the Monster Truck Backflip astonished the audience, StatueViva drew crowds and the animals events were remarkable.
