Shawnee residents and members in surrounding communities attended the second day of the 81st Pottawatomie County Free Fair.

Many young students throughout the county in Future Farmers of America and 4H gathered at the Heart of Oklahoma Exposition with their cows, pigs, goats and other animals for various competitions.

Families assisted these young people with bathing, grooming and preparing the animals for contests.

In addition, families browsed trade show booths and fair exhibits as well as played games at the carnival.

The Free Fair will continue through Saturday and Friday, Sept. 6 will be Kids Day.
