The annual Stafford County Agricultural and Homemaking Fair returned to its apparent home turf with a new company that filled the amusement area with multiple rides over the weekend.

From Jakon Daigle, 2, having fun getting the prize-winning rubber duckie to Orion Sandlin, 5, adding his own muscle to keep his ride spinning, it was children who seemed to have the most fun. Fair food, though maybe not too healthy, was a favorite along the midway. The fair also crowned a Miss Teen Stafford and Miss Stafford, Kristen Halter. Many took to the outdoor sports, including a monster truck thrill. For others, there were rabbits and a peacock, along with a tom turkey. City kids even got a chance to ride on a horse. Vendors offered the latest models of farm and earth-moving equipment, and political candidates were on hand to offer a brighter future if elected.
