The Marion County Fair Begins tomorrow, and the State President of the FFA hopes the entire area will come celebrate. Chandler Jahner, a 2017 Pella graduate, says he had many great experiences in showing animals and attending the fair during his time growing up in the county. He hopes local FFA and 4H members will take the time to also have fun, and that the community will support their projects.

“Speaking to those individuals, those young people that are involved with the county fair — take every single one of those opportunities, and run with it,” he says. “Something as big as showing in a show is great, but the water fight out at the wash rack, that stuff is fun too, and you can grow from that as well with the connections that you make there.”

The Marion County Fair starts Friday and continues through July 18th. The KNIA/KRLS Big Red Radio is broadcasting updates from the fair.
