MADERA - There are three days in the books for the 2012 edition of the Madera District Fair. On Saturday the community gathered to support the kids from the FFA and 4H with the Junior Livestock Auction.

Last year, the fair set a record with the amount of money raised and this year it is expected to be even bigger. A goat sold for $27 dollars a pound, a turkey sold for over $700; with numbers like this that goal should be easy to achieve.

If you missed the auction, you can still support the kids with bump bids. A bump bid is a donation to an individual kid to help them with their project. Contact the livestock office for more information.

Rodney Atkins took over the concert stage last night to a nearly sold out venue. During the show Rodney brought up on stage children from the audience and even threw the microphone out for fans to sing their favorite Atkin songs. Fans did not go away disappointed.

Today is the last day of the fair. Gates open at 3pm and wrist bands are on sale in the carnival for only $15 and kids under 12 are free.
