A queen has been crowned, trophies awarded, the animals have returned home and the last live horse race of the season has been run to bring to a close the 127th Gillespie County Fair.
Held at the Gillespie County Fair Grounds, the four-day celebration Thursday through Sunday included a queen’s contest, music, parade, live pari-mutuel horse racing, carnival and midway, agricultural and home products displays, domino tournament, livestock judging and more.
“It was a great fair,” said Robert (Henry) Sagebiel, president of the sponsoring Gillespie County Fair and Festivals Association. “We received great support from the community.”
He also recognized all of those who brought entries for the fair. “A lot of people really enjoy looking at all of the vegetables, canned goods, sewing, baked goods, arts and crafts and more that are in the Exhibition Hall.”
