Fair-goers will be able to sample everything from fish, fowl, and small game

Wyandotte County Fair event planners have a special treat for fair-goers this year -- a wild game cook-off. The fair will be held July 31-Aug. 4 at the Woodlands Race Track, 9700 Leavenworth Road in Kansas City.

The event, co-sponsored by Cabela's, will include three categories: feather/fowl, fish, and fur. Participants will prepare their favorite wild game dishes at home and bring them to the fair to be judged. The event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 4, and all entries must be checked in no later than 6:15 p.m. Judging will begin at 6:30 p.m. and prizes awarded at 7:30.

First-, second-, and third-place cash prizes will be awarded: $50, $25, and $10, respectively.
