Local folks seeing Blue at fair

This year, nearly 1,000 youth participated in 4-H events before and during the Clackamas County Fair.

The fair ran from Aug. 12 to 20.

Popular events include horses, livestock, cooking, sewing, photography, computers, and horticulture. The 4-H Youth Development Program teaches youth life skills - including leadership and citizenship - that make young people even greater assets to their communities.

Clackamas County has the largest 4-H club program in the state. There are active 4-H members in every community in the county and in surrounding areas.

Horse and Dog County Fair contests were held in July and are not included in the local results below:
