People are braving the heat and heading to the Marshall County Fair.

While most people go to have fun and enjoy the great food, rides, games, and entertainment, some young folks are there to take part in some serious competition.

Young people from all over the county work throughout the year to show off their prized livestock.

It’s a lot of work and the kids take it to heart.

But they say they love every minute of it.

“I love showing my animals. I love working with them. It’s my passion to show them,” says 4-H Club member Raegan O’Neil.

“I love showing at the fair. I always come to do it for the competition. I love working with animals and messing with animals,” says 4-H Club member Hallie Clark.

Several kids took part in the Pee Wee Hog Showmanship Competition.
