The demolition derby crowd stands for the National Anthem.

As the 75th Annual Chelsea Community Fair kicked off its week, here are some random photos from this fun, family-oriented summer event.

The Kiddie Parade winners were all smiles.

Some of the kiddie parade winners with their blue ribbons.

And I hope to get a list of all the winners of the Kiddie Parade soon so I can post their names. So stay tuned.

The sheep were being groomed or relaxing before their competition.

Sheep relaxing before they show.

The North American Midway Entertainment rides were in full tint.

    What memories these photos bring back. As a member of the CHS FFA group in the mid fifties, and living across the street from the fairgrounds I enjoyed lots of involvement during FAIR WEEK. Of course then Fair Week was Wednesday through Saturday!

    Thanks for your work
