3rd Almost Annual Washington County Fair Ride

  • Bennington High School 16610 Bennington Road Bennington, NE, 68007 United States (map)

Join us at 8:00 am SUNDAY JULY 31, 2016 for the 3rd "Almost" Annual WASHINGTON COUNTY FAIR BICYCLE RIDE

BENNINGTON HIGH SCHOOL at 156TH & BENNINGTON ROAD TO WASHINGTON COUNTY FAIR IN ARLINGTON, NE AND RETURN

The Washington County Fair is inviting cyclists to enjoy a great 31 or 56 mile Sunday morning ride from Bennington, NE through the country to Arlington, Nebraska. The goal of the ride is to create additional awareness of the Washington County Fair and hopefully engage people who wouldn't normally be exposed to agriculture and livestock production.

WE’RE RIDING FOR $20.

• If you would like to make a contribution, funds raised will support Friends of the Fair, which provides scholarships for deserving 4-H youth.
• You can also enjoy a warm breakfast at the Pancake Feed and if you’d like a beer, we’ll get you one!

The Washington County Fair started 1918 to develop better methods in food production, foster development of resources, and promote prosperity. It’s successfully incorporated that to become a facility that allows 4-H members, businesses, and organizations to showcase their talents and ag-related products, and which provides entertainment to bring together the community.
