FARMINGTON -- Did someone get your goat?
If not, Liz Jewkes knows a couple of kids who wouldn't mind using your kid at the Davis County Fair.
Jewkes is a West Point resident helping to organize the fair's "Pee Wee Goat and Lamb Show," an event to help children ages 5 to 8 learn to show animals.
Grand champions are named, but sometimes it's not clear who is leading -- the kid or the kid -- as the pair parade before judges.
"Sometimes the animal will take the show," said Jewkes, who comes from a family of goat herders.
The kids-with-kids event is one of many attractions at the annual fair, which runs Wednesday through Saturday.
General admission is free, excluding some of the regularly popular events, such as the returning Freestyle Motocross, the annual rodeo and the demolition derby.
Children who want to be part of the Pee Wee event need to bring or borrow their own small or baby goat.
Bringing your own dog to participate in the new Splash Dogs attraction is another option in the fair schedule.
Splash Dogs is a dog-enthusiast company that organizes and promotes dock jumping events across the U.S. Organizers promote the daily event as simply watching how far dogs jump into water.
"It is a competition. The owners toss a Frisbee or something. It's fun to watch the dogs get into it," said Megan Hatch, the Davis County Fair coordinator.
Bringing a lawn mower to Farmington might be just as easy.
The fair also is hosting the second annual Mow Down Show Down! Participants let no grass grow under their feet as they race their riding lawn mowers.
Organizers had this serious (but not too serious) advice on the website: "Find a machine. If you don't already have one, look in your neighbor's backyard. Don't spend a lot of money for one."
The website says nothing about baby goats.
Bringing an appetite is optional. Several pie-eating and cupcake-eating contests are scheduled separately during the fair's run.
"We'll probably make 200 to 300 (baked items)," said Marni Kostley, owner of Kaysville's Sugar Daisy bakery and provider of baked goods for the competition.
A long as the baby is on board for the fair, Davis Hospital and Medical Center is sponsoring a baby show Friday. Prizes and ribbons will go to babies in several age categories.
Organizers said there are no rules to win the baby show, it just takes "cuteness."
You might bring gullibility to the Legacy Events Center. One of the magic acts on stage is by a man named Christopher Fair.
"He's been at our fair many years. He engages with the audience," Hatch said.
In 2009, the fair had an estimated gate attendance of more than 40,000 people.
Parking is $4 per vehicle, or $2 with a donation of two nonperishable food items, such as canned goods, that will go to charity.
So bring your can. Goats like them, too.
