4-H Events At MontanaFair

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Like other similar fairs across the country, MontanaFair has deep roots in agriculture. That tradition continued Friday night.

Kids from various 4-H programs across the region gathered at the Grandstand to present their animals, as a part of the Pocket Pet Show. Jessi Kauffman of Laurel showed off her Cockatiel, which she named Vester. Jessi is in the running to win a prize at the show.

"You need to be very confident about your bird, and what you know about them, or whatever animal you have, but you don't want to be too confident," said Jessi.

Jessi won 4th place with Vester at 2012's MontanaFair. She hopes to do the same, or even better, this year.

There will be more 4-H events taking place at the fair Saturday. At 8:30 AM, two horse shows will start. At 1 PM, there will be a rocket launch expo.
