4-H Kicks off county free fair with indoor carnival
Oklahoma County 4-H will add another element of fun to the 98th annual Oklahoma County Free Fair Saturday, Aug. 25, with its free indoor fun carnival.
The carnival will kick off a year of events in 4-H Saturday morning from 9 to 11:30 a.m.
In addition to carnival events, 4-H youth will be collecting gently-used clothing for the state’s fire victims through the Christmas in August program.
“We’re asking everyone who wants to enjoy the special activities at this year’s fair to bring in their used clothing,” explained Kyle Worthington, 4-H Youth Educator at the OSU Cooperative Extension Service. “We’re working with the Christmas Connection to supply good, used clothes for the families who lost everything in this summer’s fires.”
Youth who want to participate in the carnival will receive a carnival ticket that allows them to play all of the games for free. The games yield prizes for kids of all ages.
Children attending the kick-off can also take part in “make and take” craft booths where they’ll make an assortment of creative projects.
“Our kick-off will also give young people in our county the opportunity to see if there is a 4-H Club they might want to join” Worthington said. “We have project clubs that focus on robotics, cooking, shooting sports and even horses, but we also have traditional clubs where members work on their own projects while coming together for club activities.”
