Angelina County Youth Fair kicks off on Tuesday

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Pies and cookies are being tested and animals are being groomed this week as local 4H and FFA kids prepare for the Angelina County Youth Fair.

Cooking exhibitions, the broiler show and the forestry competition will be the first events of the fair and the week will end with the animal shows and of course the animal auction on Saturday night and of course belt buckles and scholarship opportunities are up for grabs for the winners.

Angelina County Extension Agent, Ryan Merrel said, "There's a huge turnout we hope that everybody whether you're involved in the youth programs or not will come out because there's a lot of neat things out there you can see animals are going to be everywhere and if you ask real nicely I'm sure they might even let you pet some of them."

The youth fair gets underway on Tuesday and runs through Saturday evening.
