Friday was Ladies Day at the U.P. State Fair. This long standing tradition drew hundreds of women to the activities tent.
This event gave the ladies the opportunity to be pampered, win prizes and socialize. Throughout the day there were cooking demonstrations, beer and wine tasting from local companies, manicures, pedicures and massages. New this year was a quilt block contest.
â??And weâ??re going to put that together to make a beautiful wonderful quilt made up of all these different quilt blocks from women all around the area,â?? said U.P. State Fair management team member Sheila Kruger. â??So, itâ??s just been something that women love coming back to year after year. They feel celebrated and we want to celebrate them.â??
The fair continues tomorrow with agriculture day and Sunday is family and scout day.
