USU museum examines ‘fair’ fascination

Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology will investigate and examine America’s fascination with county fairs at its next “Saturdays at the Museum” event on Saturday, August 14. Event organizers invite everyone to visit the museum before heading to this year’s Cache County Fair and Rodeo. Guests can sample fine fair foods, like apple pie made from scratch, and learn how to make it. They can marvel at fantastic fair displays like the Crazy Patch Quilt, an incredible show of craft and skill. Attendees can also participate in fun family fair activities, including carving “granny faces” in apples and fishing prizes from the fishing ponds. Guests are invited to bring their own phenomenal fair goods to claim a blue ribbon and participate in a raffle for prizes. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the event is free.
