Teens get involved when it's time for fair

By Walter Guerra

Can teens be involved in the Amador County Fair you ask? The answer is yes, teens can be involved in many different ways. Whether they are part of 4-H, a sports team that has a booth, or just want to have fun at the carnival, the fair is the perfect place for teens to have a blast.

Amador County Fair has many activities and booths related to teens. There is a Kids Day Parade in downtown Plymouth, on July 24, at 9:30 a.m. They also can buy a burger from the volleyball team and refreshments from the wrestling team. Don’t forget ice! The band will be selling ice, also.

Teens can volunteer to help make the fair happen by putting together booths in the Main Exhibit Hall.

Teens are riding horses in fair, as well as exhibiting the animals they have raised on their own.

Have you ever wanted to dress like a pirate? At the Amador County Fair, you can. Dress like a pirate and get into the fair for free until 6 p.m., each day. Admission for adults is $10 (13 and up), for seniors is $7 (60 and up), and for for children (7 to 12) is $5. Children under 6 are free.

The fair is a great way for teens to have fun and spend time with the rest of the community. “I think teen involvement in fair is one of the best things about this county,” said Carisa Swason, 2014 Rodeo Queen. “It incorporates the youth into the community, and creates life-long friendships. Growing up participating in fair myself, I have realized that I wouldn’t be who I am today without fair. We all learn a lot about ourselves, others and life in those four days. The fair grows hardworking, determined, respectful and responsible youth. It’s my second home and I love it.”
