BONNERS FERRY — The 102nd Boundary County Fair really did take the visitors around the world in five days.

A host of activities were scheduled with a large community turnout. At opening ceremonies, Trew Lammers was named Fair Queen, William Hollenbaugh was named Fair King and Jacob Bliss was named Fair Prince. The king and queen are awarded $500 to use toward their education. Additionally 4-H awards $100 to all three participants.

The 2022 Little Prince and Princess were Emmett Solomon and Kenzie Arthur. Their names were drawn from all those who entered.

Scores of kiddos chased down fowl and goats at the Family Fun Night and many happily carried their caught fowl in sacks for family members and the community to admire.

Animals were shown throughout the week. Many Bonners Ferry Future Farmers of America members earned high honors. For the market beef quality finals, Dillon Mai earned grand champion and Brody Rice earned reserved grand champion. Stryder Liermann won Grand Champion Market Swine. Gaige Johnson was named Champion Swine Showmen.

The Butterfly House was a special treat for the young and young at heart. The parade was one of the last events and was filled with smiling faces and happy fairgoers.
