LIMA — Student shows are again being given a platform during this year’s fair, offering many community groups a venue to show off their talents.

Student shows director Tina Hershberger is eager to get the shows started this year.

The Allen County Fair Kewpee Showcase of Bands has become a yearly showcase of high school bands. This non-competitive event that begins with a performance from the host band — Bath High School this year. Bath will play the National Anthem, which will officially begin the show, and is given the opportunity to participate in the fair ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Baton and Flag Corps Competition is the showcase of the local majorette squads and flag corps. Each high school is given the opportunity to compete in multiple categories at their division level. This year will also bring the return of the dance team and dance twirl team categories.

While most of the patrons of the student shows tend to be family members of those participating, the show is open to all fairgoers.
