Shhhhh---I have a secret!!!!
There's a great competition that most fairgoers miss each year due to the competition site. It's the llama competitions held in the covered ring behind the McGough Arena on the opening weekend of the fair. The llama competitions start on Saturday morning 9/12 at 9 a.m. and continue most of the day. They resume on Sunday morning at 9 a.m. This is a Level II ALSA show and a southeast regional qualifier, so look for llamas from multiple states in competition. A total of $6,000 in prize money will be up for grabs. So do a little trekking down the hill behind the McGough Arena and see these magnificent animals!
