Blow bubbles and eat pie at youth fair

WARRENSBURG The Warren County Youth Fair returns next week to the county fairgrounds on Schroon River Road and theres plenty of fun for all.

Gates open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4, and there are contests for all ages. Stuff yourself with pie during the pie eating contest, or swing your hips with a hula hoop in another. Bubble gum lovers can enter the bubble gum contest and entrants in the youth talent competition can qualify for the state talent show.

Community agencies will have exhibits and lots of animals will be on display, along with a horse show.

Sponsored by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County. The fair will feature a 4-H Craft Zone for youth of all ages to enjoy. The Cooperative Extension was given a very generous donation of craft items that young people can use to create a craft item of their choice. There is no cost for this activity.

At 4 p.m., a live auction will be held to benefit the Warrensburg EMS and beginning at 5 p.m., the Johnsburg and Garnet Lake fire departments will hold a chicken barbecue through 7:30 p.m.

Venomentality and Face The Lie will be performing at the Warren County Youth Fair this Saturday.

What started as a solo acoustic recording project for then 12-year-old singer/songwriter Valerie Webb, quickly snowballed into a full band electric juggernaut. Venomentality was formed in 2005 as musicians came on board to support the songs and begin work on new songs. Local music teachers and producers hand picked the most gifted teen musicians from the Albany area.

The band recently filmed its first one hour syndicated television special "The New Music Showcase" at Comcast Studio in Springfield, Mass.

Face the Lie is the result of years of ceaseless dedication to the art of music. With influences in post-hardcore and heavy rock, they have a sound that is wholly original and designed to make you think as well as rock out. The intention is to create a passion for positive change through the music and lyrics they write.

Admission to the Youth Fair is free. For more information contact Cornell University Cooperative Extension at 668-4881 or 623-3291.
