There is a brand new addition to the Montcalm County Fairgrounds. This new building was the result of a generous anonymous donation and the hard work done by members of Montcalm County Horse Leaders. The structures main purpose will be to serve as an escape from the weather, as well as hosting events. The pavilion is handicap accessible and provides electrical outlets to fairground patrons. Along with these features, the pavilion will also provide a shaded area to view events, as well as tables for eating. It is expected to be a highly beneficial addition to the fairgrounds.

“This is just one example of what has been achieved on the fairgrounds through volunteer efforts. The Montcalm County Horse Leaders should be commended for the dedication and pride they have displayed through their efforts on the fairgrounds,” said a spokesperson for the Montcalm County Fair Association.

There were several riders who tried new events, some who are pretty new to showing that stepped up and helped the team, and others that are very seasoned riders that put in solid performances. I’m very proud of all of them.”
