UNION — The sponsors of the Flower Show at this year’s Union County Fair are inviting everyone attending the fair to “Let’s Go to the Beach.”

The 2015 Union County will be held Oct. 13-17 and, as it has for the 107 years of its existence, the fair will emphasize a wide range of traditional county fair activities including livestock show, agricultural shows, and home economics shows.

Among the shows presented at this year’s fair will be the Flower Show presented by the Good Neighbors Garden Club and the Union County Master Gardeners Association.

Entitled “Lets Go to the Beach,” the show invites gardeners to “enter your best horticultural specimens or reserve a slot and create a floral design for a chance to win blue ribbons and a grand prize.”

All entries must received between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12, no exceptions. Entries received after 5 p.m. will not be placed or judged.

No grooming of flowers after entry will be permitted.
