Cowboy Boots and Country Roots were celebrated for ten days as the San Juan County Fair wound to a close on August 14.

The fair was a success on many fronts, despite several challenges. Large crowds enjoyed a wide range of events at the fair grounds and beyond.

A sold-out concert on August 12 by country music star Aaron Tippin drew thousands of fans from near and far.

Local talent was also on display with the annual Farm Bureau Talent Find and the large number of entries in a host of categories in the fair building.

The annual Junior Livestock auction featured the sale of more than 100 animals and culminated a summer of hard work for youth, and their parents.

A sudden rain storm on August 10 inundated both participants and spectators at the mud volleyball tournament. By the end, everyone was dealing with the mud.

Four nights of rodeo and horse games over the two weekends of the fair went by without a hitch; until the final night, when two local youth were injured in the Locals Rodeo.

One young cowboy was life-flighted to a regional hospital because of his injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.

“I am so relieved that everyone is okay,” said an exhausted Fair Manager Anna Thayn. “I’m glad we had protective vests or it could have been worse.”
