BLYTHE - The Colorado River Fair introduce the 2013/2014 Fair Ambassadors, Dylan Dobbs, Francesca Kontilis, Christopher Naavarro, Nicole Bush, and Mikayla Bush.

The Fair Ambassadors participate in many activities, including the 2013 Christmas Parade; devising a game show or other presentation which provides information about the fair, and presenting it to local community clubs; assisting with clerking for the poultry, rabbit, and livestock shows; and judging the Barn Duty award at the fair.

'Up Up and Away' at the Colorado River Fair

The 'Up, Up and Awway" at the Colorado River Fair is months away, but pre-sale carnival ride tickets will be available for purchase just in time for Christmas. The carnival ride tickets are just $20 and make great stocking stuffers. The $20 gets the fair-goers an all-day ride bracelet and coupons that can be used for games, booths, and food stands located in the midway.

"Up-Up and Away at the Colorado River Fair"- themed fair will also showcase Helm and Sons Amusements back for the second year.

This carnival is a family company committed 100 percent to safety and quality while providing guests with great value and memorable experience.

Helm and Sons have state-of-the-art rides and equipment and offers plenty of shade and benches.

"The Colorado River Fair staff, Board of Directors and volunteers are committed to bring to our community a professional and safe environment," said Colorado River Fair CEO Bruce Wilson.

In Blythe, the "entitlement system" (as NOYB Blythe opines) is all about WHO you know. The "Good old Boy" system is the way it has always been and will always be in this small town. That is the truth, I know what I'm saying!

To "new judges," I would not make comments when you do not know the whole story. BTW, the fair ambassadors chosen DESERVE their positions. Everyone needs to quit believing that we should have an "entitlement society."

I would bet my bottom dollar that three of those kids dont have any pull in the community as far as WHO THEY KNOW and they probably just did there best and showed there knowledge. Just an assumption but when these five went in to the interview they probably werent thinking they had it in the bag no matter what. Jus sayin.

WOW! from what I heard and the word on the street is the judging was terrible. Some had 5 judges and some had 4 judges. How fair is that! There are some kids that did not get picked who put there heart and soul in FFA. Maybe the judges should be hand picked from all over. This is a big achievement to be an Ambassador and each kid get a $5000.00 scholarship towards college. I know from past experience this event is so political it's basically who know. I am not saying some of these kids that were picked don't deserve it, (deleted) But what ever life goes on and the judges have to live with it!!
