For one Welch, OK resident, the Inter-State Fair and Rodeo is all about family. Ryan Rexwinkle, the 2013 President, has never missed the fair in 39 years. "I've got a picture from 1982 and we were at my mom and dad's camper during fair week. My nephews are playing a game at the table, and now my nephews are helping at the fair."
The committee has made improvements to the grounds this year. A pipe fence replaces the arena's wire fence, and the change is mostly for safety. Fun passes, which admit the bearer to each of nine nights of granstand events, are $35 through July 31. On August 1, the price increases to $45. Mailing and convenience charges apply.
