Volunteers prepare for 2019 Multnomah County Fair
"Honoring Those Who Serve" is the announced theme of the 113th Multnomah County Fair, coming to historic, nonprofit Oaks Amusement Park this Memorial Day weekend.
"Also new this year is 'Bugs Galore and More', where guests can walk through a jungle atmosphere and view all sorts of creepy crawlies, including bugs and reptiles," Smith told THE BEE.
The Oaks Dance Pavilion will feature the traditional Fair competitions for ribbons and cash awards. "To be more ecologically friendly this year, the MCF is not mailing out the Fair Exhibitor Handbook, so please get entry forms, times, and dates from our website – www.multcofair.org" Smith announced.
Saturday is also 4-H Day at the Fair, in which local kids compete for prizes. Sunday features a talent show where kids of all ages will vie for trophies and cash awards.
"Returning is our Vendor Midway, with great shopping and Fair food vendors," reminded Smith.
Hours are 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; and, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Memorial Day. Gate admission to the Fair and parking are free!
