Ventura County Fair’s Entry Days Start Friday

Trophies, ribbons and more than $175,000 in cash prizes will be awarded

It’s that time again for fresh-baked pies, handmade quilts, children’s art projects and just about everything in between. The Ventura County Fair is back for 2010’s “Western Nights and Carnival Lights,” so get out your recipe books, instruction manuals and pure skill, and prepare to create a masterpiece.

The fair showcases all types of creativity, from photography, paintings, clothes and baked goods to table settings, pottery and model airplanes. There’s even an entire building dedicated to Ventura County’s youth, including jewelry, drawings, woodwork and writing.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 23-25, many departments will be accepting entries for the 2010 Ventura County Fair. These include home arts, amateur fine arts, gems and minerals, youth expo, 4-H and grange, photography, horse show, and Uncle Leo’s Barn Ag Contest.

With thousands of categories to choose from, you’re sure to find a place to showcase your talents. Then, bring your friends and family to the fair to see your work on display. Plus, there are trophies to be won, hundreds of ribbons, and more than $175,000 in cash prizes. Be sure to look up the entry dates for the new cowboy poetry contest and the “I ♥ Ventura County” Video Contest.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
