A day at the fair

Douglas County residents turn out at the fair and rodeo on Aug. 5

Douglas County residents took advantage of the numerous activities offered during the Douglas County Fair and Rodeo on Aug. 5, the second-to-last day of the event at the fairgounds in Castle Rock.

While many families milled through the livestock barns to see the animals, others walked the midway enjoying carnival rides and popular fair food like turkey legs or fresh lemonade. Children participated in the stick horse rodeo and the Mutton Bustin' event, where they rode sheep rodeo-style for as long as they could hold on. Earlier in the day, fairgoers of all ages got their hands dirty during the pie-eating contests.
