Tri-County Free Fair King And Queen Candidates Announced

This year, the Tri-County Free Fair came extremely close to losing one of its longest standing traditions, that being the King and Queen Contest, which is approaching its 70th year. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak many events were either canceled or modified for this year’s Tri-County Free Fair. This was also the first year that the fair is not open to the general public in the history of the event. Plans were constructed to allow the fair to offer 4-H/FFA contests, as well as the King and Queen contest. Typically, the candidates work together to serve at the fair, record radio ads, work booths, be interviewed by judges and provide entertainment for the fair banquet. However, this year, interviews were done over Zoom and will be announced on July 9-11 in Herington.
