The Clifford McClain Memorial Grandstand was filled with laughter, tears, and maybe a hissy fit or two Wednesday as the American Association of University Women held its annual Baby Show.
Over 100 youngsters participated in the show, with awards presented in several categories. Recently crowned Fairest of the Fair Hannah Lea Turner assisted with the award presentations.
Winning the Sweepstakes honors were Kiera Bonner, 34 months, the daughter of Shyla and Xavier Bonner; and Haynes Matthew Fuston, 25 months, son of Brandon and Kara Fuston. They won first in their categories before vying for the Sweepstakes award.
