IT RAINED! And it rained all day.
Now, if you know anything about any kind of racing you KNOW these two types of racing don't mind mud and neither do the drivers. It was a day these riders and drivers had planned for..........
According to a statement on their facebook page: "We had two choices: go with an abbreviated show in the rain or disappoint all of those who had called to see if the show was still on. We chose the abbreviated."
I didn't get there on Saturday even though I was all geared up to attend. I was looking forward to getting lots of photos but
The Pocomoke Fair committee should have some photos soon. If so I will try to post them.
But I did find this one photo and posting it is a MUST!
Pocomoke City has so many wonderful people living in it and there are so many wonderful organizations. But this is by far the greatest !

The Great Pocomoke Fair is an open Fair, not a 4-H Fair. Therefore, we accept entries from the surrounding counties and states. We had entries from all three states making up the Delmarva Peninsula.
This year there were 76 participants (up from 64 in 2010) who submitted 829 entries (up from 680 in 2010) for competition. There were 38 adult participants, 14 Seniors (ages 14-18), 19 Juniors (ages 8-13), 4 Children (under 8 years old) and 1 handicapped participant.

POCOMOKE CITY -- Members of the Great Pocomoke Fair Committee met with the City Council to request permission to sell beer at a truck and tractor pull on June 25.
John Smith, committee president, told the council that the sale would be controlled within the city tent with a double fence around the tent. He added the event was primarily for adults, not children.
Gloria Smith added the fairgrounds were not in close proximity to any church and the schools would be closed. She said other events in Worcester and Wicomico counties did allow beer to be sold.
Police Chief J.D. Ervin checked with other towns and found no major problems.
Dave Barnes, a committee member, said if the town did not allow beer sales, "there would be no more Pocomoke Fair."
No council member stepped up to move for passage of the request after Hawkins asked for a motion, but it was decided the matter would be taken up at the next meeting when a full council was present.
Members of the council did vote to accept revised bids for the construction of an ambulance garage building and a concession building for Cypress Park.
Both measures were brought up at the previous meeting, but the bids were not within budgeted figures for the construction. After items were deleted for both projects, Beauchamp Construction was awarded both contracts, at a cost of $99,454 for the ambulance building and a cost of $83,420 for the concession building.
Under other business, the council heard the first reading of an ordinance to give homeowners a tax rebate of $2,000 or half of their taxes, whichever is less, if they install a sprinkler system; voted to give the Pocomoke Elementary School PTA four rounds of golf for its upcoming fundraiser; and voted to pay $625 for a photo display at the Route 13 Welcome Center.
Tom Grigsby was presented with a certificate of appreciation for his service as chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission and Chief J.D. Ervin introduced a new police officer, Vincent Page.
