Wayne County Fair Winner!

What the Hay?

That was the name of our 2019 Educational theme and the name of the guessing contest at our fair barn this year. And it was a RECORD BREAKER! We had over 920 guesses…the most since we started this tradition of a guessing contest back in 2003. Ironically, in 2003 we started the guessing contest with the same thing – the weight of a bale of hay. We would like to congratulate Jerry Frisch of Huron County on his winning guess of 709… he was the closest to the actual weight of 713 pounds! Jerry actually won based on the tie-breaker question, he was closer to the actual date the hay was baled – which was July 13th, 2019. There was one other person that guessed within 4 pounds…so the tie-breaker question did make a difference! Jerry won the $30 gift card to Bob Evans Restaurant.

We would like to thank everyone that stopped to make a guess & visited with us. To look up all of the past contest winners, please visit our Fair Barn & Contest Section of our Website!
