For more than a century, there's been an annual fair to celebrate Snohomish county. The Evergreen State Fai moved to the fairgrounds in Monroe in 1949- and has continued to grow since then.
This year's theme is "Get Your Squeal On!" - which brings to mind animals and racing at the Evergreen Speedway. But there's so much more to enjoy!
Traci Hobbs from the Evergreen Speedway and Marilyn Segle from the WSU 4-H program joined Margaret to talk about the Fair and especially the young people from the Snohomish County 4-H program who show their animals at the Fair every year. The Snohomish County 4-H program is one of the largest in the US. Several Snohomish 4-H members brought their animals to the show.
The Evergreen State Fair opened today-- and runs through Labor Day.
