giving of ribbons and the efforts to win a blue or a red
or a white ribbon have been an important part of the
Thurston County Fair long before it was officially
"The Thurston County Fair".
many families, participating and competing in the Fair
each year is an important and planned for family
tradition. And whether it's the showing of a prize
animal, the displaying a prize quilt or flower arrangement,
or competing in one of the many other categories,
collecting ribbons is and has always been an important
part of being a fair participant.
