Woodford County Fair pageants set for Sept. 19
The Woodford County Fair pageants will be held Sept. 19 at Huffman Pavilion at the Fairgrounds. The Preteen is at 1 p.m., the Teen at 4 p.m. and the Miss at 7 p.m. Two titles will be given in each of the categories. One title is for Woodford County residents only, and the other is the open class, which can be entered by any state resident. The open classes are preliminaries for Kentucky County Fair pageants. Most photogenic, best dress, hair, and smile awards will also be given. The pageants are normally held during the Woodford County Fair, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the pageants will be different from past years. There will be no in-person registration. Forms and fees must be done electronically, if possible; otherwise, they must be mailed to arrive no later than Sept. 16. Other changes: everyone must sign a COVID waiver; each contestant is allowed two guests; those attending should bring a lawn chair, as no chairs will be provided, only picnic tables; protective masks must be worn; no individual interviews will be held; the top five will be given an on-stage question; and there will be no attire changes. All rules may be seen at www.woodfordcountyfairky.com. Inquiries may be directed to Jenny Marshall (859-753-1920), Kim Rose (859-753-4117) or Mary Lou Watkins (859-229-9461).
