Boone County Fair Kicks Off

The 2015 Boone County Fair kicked off today. State Representative Joe Sosnowski was in attendance for fair festivities and will have a booth at the fairgrounds all week long.

The representative will be hosting a coloring contest with Comptroller Leslie Munger's office. There will be a table for kids to color aged 4-5, 6-8 and 9-10. There will be a winner from each age group picked to receive a $15 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble.

Participants do not have to color it at the fair and will be allowed to take it home, but it must be turned in at the fair or post marked by Wednesday, August 19th to Rep. Sosnowski's office at, 305 Amphitheater Drive, Rockford, IL 61107. Only one entry per person.

On Wednesday and Thursday of the fair, an ICASH representative from the Treasurer's office will be on site to help fair goers locate unclaimed property/cash with the state.

In addition, Rep. Sosnowski's booth will include a wheel people can spin to win prizes.
