Fair Looks To Revamp Coordinating Process
The Shawano County Fair will have a different feel this year. There will be no Fairest of the Fair. Fair Manager Dale Hodkiewicz says it’s not something they’re making permanent, but they need someone with initiative to lead the program.
“We’re revamping the program and looking for somebody that really wants to step up and be a really good coordinator” Hodkiewicz said. ” It takes a lot of time and effort to do the project right. We’re looking for better participation, but we just took a year off or two, whatever it takes to reorganize the program.”
Hodkiewicz said this was the first time the fair has operated without a Fairest of the Fair since he took over. The Fairest of the Fair is considered royalty at the fair, and would introduce acts and performances through the weekend.
