Montrose County Fair & Rodeo: Having Fun & Staying Safe

The Montrose County Fair & Rodeo is once again upon us and residents county-wide are ready to enjoy all of the fun events and activities. This annual event celebrates Western traditions and way of life, while bringing our community together.

A wonderful thing about the fair is that it is  family-friendly, and many people take advantage of that by attending the events with family and friends. This includes admiring the livestock displays and the kiddos exploring the petting zoo, which are some of the best parts of any local fair. With our loved-ones’ well-being in mind, it is also good to review some basic safety recommendations when coming in contact with farm animals.

Fair and Petting Zoo Safety offers some quick tips:

  • Know that animals can carry germs that can make people sick
  • Never eat, drink, or put things into your mouth in areas where animals are displayed
  • Older adults, pregnant women, and young children should be careful around animals
  • Wash your hands with soap and water right after touching animals or their surroundings
