Summertime in Alexandria is never a dull moment. The Summer is full of activites around the community. One of the largest events in the community is the Madison County 4-H Fair. Once again the fair will take place at Beulah Park from July 20-26, 2014. The fair has been sponsored by the Alexandria Kiwanis Club since 1942. The 4-H Fair brings carnival rides & games, business exhibits, entertainment, queen contest, talent show, and 4-H exhibits and competition.
Hosting the Madison County 4-H Fair every summer is one example of an invaluable service for county youth provided by the local Alexandria Kiwanis Club. By participating in 4-H, youth have opportunities to develop career focused skills, to demonstrate organizational leadership, to mentor younger colleagues, and to connect with peers with like-minded interests and goals. These youth compete in livestock judging, project demonstrations, a queen contest, a dress review, and a youth talent show; all striving to enhance their skills while weaving life-long friendships.
Every summer, thousands of youth, hundreds of families, numerous small businesses/organizations, several local communities, and a small group of dedicated volunteers interact with one another due to the efforts of the Alexandria Kiwanis Club. The hours of work required to sponsor the fair is great but Madison County Youth truly profit. And, the final results of these contributions – priceless!
Come visit the Madison County 4-H Fair in beautiful Beulah Park. Along with this event, Beulah Park offers basketball courts, walking trail, horseshoe pits, playground, tennis court, and public swimming pool. When your ready for summer fun...come visit Alexandria.
