Do you have a secret talent for brewing beer or throwing together nuts and seeds into a one-of-a-kind work of crop art? Do you love to recreate your grannie's recipe for elderberry wine? Perhaps your strengths lie in scrapbooking or stitching quilts. There's a category for that -- and a whole lot more, everything from gelatin molds to homemade robots -- at the Denver County Fair, which is declaring 2013 "The Year of the Win."
But you'll have to act fast, because today is the last day to register your masterpiece fruit pie, artist trading cards and pet gerbils for the fair's countless blue-ribbon competitions. You have until midnight to slip under the wire.
To learn more, peruse the categories and register your entry, visit the Denver County Fair online; fees are $5 for online entries and $7 for walk-ins. And remember, you can still enter dozens of live competitions -- belly dance-offs, pie-eating pig-offs, beard and mustache contests, spelling bees, speed-texting sprints and more -- just by showing up fifteen minutes before show time.
Spend a glorious weekend at the Denver County Fair on August 9-11 at the National Western Complex. Now, giddyap! You've got the stuff!
