A total of 121 babies participated in this year’s baby show at the Lincoln County Fair. Ranging in age from 0-36 months, these babies were an adorable sight to see for everyone in the audience. A full house packed into the Ted Gilbert Memorial pageant pavilion to cheer on their favorite baby. It is estimated that 250 people were in the audience.
There were six categories this year, and each category had a boy and girl. In every category, there was a first, second and third place. Winners received a trophy that noted which place they received.
