ENTERPRISE – With the 2014 4-H dog and horse shows already history, the Wallowa County Fair continues this week with open class exhibits at Cloverleaf Hall and the livestock classes culminating with the 4-H/FFA Livestock Sale at 6 p.m. Saturday.

4-H and FFA livestock members start entering their animals Wednesday (today), Aug. 6, at 2 p.m.

Livestock classes are set to get underway Thursday at 8 a.m. with market animal conformation; the grand champion market classes will start at 7 p.m. Friday will feature livestock showmanship starting at 8:30 a.m., with all-around showmanship classes at 7 p.m. The 4-H/FFA Small Animal Show is set for 8 a.m. Saturday.

The Open Class exhibit in Cloverleaf Hall opens to the public at 10 a.m. each day of the fair starting Wednesday; Cloverleaf will be open until 7 p.m. throughout the rest of the fair until Saturday, when 4-H and open class exhibits will be released at 2:30 p.m.

The food booth at the fair is open throughout the week.

Other highlights of the rest of fair week include:

Wednesday: 6-8 p.m., Music at the Fair with Brady Goss.

Thursday: 1 p.m., Community Service Award and Ice Cream/Pie Social by Wallowa County granges and Pomona Grange, with entertainment on the outdoor stage.
