Teton County Fair In Full Swing

On Saturday, it was a scene of excitement in Jackson Hole because of the Teton County Fair.

Activities have been going on through out the week.

The fairgrounds are filled with local vendors, and local law enforcement provided fun activities for the community.

Everywhere you look at the Teton County Fairgrounds, there is something for everyone.

Classic car shows, to horse derbies.

Kids were even able to hold a python.

Others took part in a watermelon eating contest.

?The first one was easy, and then the second one, I couldn’t eat it,” said contest winner Jay Jesus.

Other events have a more serious message.

“Today is a car seat check-up event. We are holding it in conjunction with the Teton County Fair. We have the biggest troop of Wyoming highway patrol men I think that have ever been together in one place at one time. Also, certified car seat technicians, as well as some local technicians from Teton County as well,? said Kathy Clay from Teton County Law Enforcement.

Teton County Law Enforcement is also raising money for D.A.R.E by offering the public to dunk a cop in the dunk tank.

? I’ve had little kids come up and actually press it with their hands. I have had one guy who actually dunked me 4 times in a row. It’s just been crazy,? said Teton County Law Enforcement intern Britton Russell.

The fair wraps up on Sunday with more events including mechanical bull riding and a silent auction .
