As drizzle turned to downpour Saturday afternoon, temporarily shutting down the livestock auction, Ramona Junior Fair participants didn’t miss a beat.
They sent their buyers across the street for an early dinner in the community center as they and their adult leaders pulled together to move the auction to the beef barn that has a covered roof.
Carnival rides, contests, entertainment, games, food, animals and lots of vendors will fill the outdoor community center for the 44th Annual Ramona Country Fair and 43rd Annual Ramona Junior Fair and Livestock Auction this week. Golfing for a Cure, a contemporary art show and a certified farmers’ market are among other weekend highlights.
