Fair-themed rocks wanted for scavenger hunts

Who’s thinking ahead to next summer’s Shawano County Fair?

Looking ahead to the 2024 event, planned for Aug. 28 to Sept. 2, fair organizers are already creating some fun, leading up to and during the fair itself.

Area residents are invited to paint a fair-themed rock (one or more). All submissions will be posted online around Aug. 1. The winning painter will collect free passes, fair food and fair clothing.

Leading up to the fair, organizers will send everyone on a scavenger hunt for passes to find these rocks hidden throughout Shawano County.

During the fair, the rocks will be hidden on the grounds for fairgoers to find and bring to the office for prizes.

Painted rocks should be brought to the fair office.
