From open class reptiles and skateboard art to rock painting and duct tape contests and a creature feature using only vegetables and fruits, there’s a category for everyone interested in entering something for the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days.

The deadline for submitting exhibit entry forms is coming down to the wire. Forms must be turned in by Monday, said Cory Hewitt, Walla Walla County Fairgrounds manager. Exhibits are submitted later per the schedule in the premium book.

“Photography is always a popular area to enter, as well as horticulture and handcrafts. Walla Walla Valley schools also always have a high number of entries, said Koren Schmaltz, exhibitor manager.

Everyone is eligible to enter an exhibit in open class, including youths 5-17 and adults 18 and older. There are many classes for ages 5 and younger, based on the department rules.

Members enrolled in 4-H or FFA who live in Asotin, Garfield, Columbia, Walla Walla, Franklin and Benton counties and Adams in Umatilla County, south to Athena, are eligible to compete.

The premium book and other information is at www.wallawallafairgrounds.com/exhibits.html Entries may be made online at walla.fairmanager.com. Entries will not be accepted after Monday.

“This is a great way to support your fair and you’ll receive a free gate pass for exhibiting,” Hewitt said.

For details, call 527-3251.
