Those that are into robotics will have an opportunity to exhibit their favorite robot as well as their home preserves, garden produce and quilts.
Though pre-registration for the fair was Friday, gardeners, bakers, quilters and artists can still enter their submissions for the Los Alamos County Fair.
The County Fair and Rodeo runs Aug.9-12. Anyone living or working in Los Alamos County is eligible to enter. Exhibit categories include: culinary (baked items), preserved foods, hobbies and crafts, fine arts, photography, quilts, clothing, knitting, crochet, needlework, horticulture and 4-H projects. Age categories range from age five, up to seniors.
Bring exhibit items to the Mesa Public Library from 2-6 p.m. Thursday. Viewing of all exhibits for handicapped individuals begins at 4 p.m. Friday, with viewing for the general public from 5-8 p.m. upstairs, at the Mesa Public Library. Public viewing continues on Saturday also at the library. Exhibits are open from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 
Those that wish to enter exhibits in the fair will need a copy of the exhibit entry booklet, which lists the various categories and classes available. They are available at the Cooperative Extension Office located in the Los Alamos Community Building, or at losalamosextension.nmsu.edu/fair.html.
They are also available at the Mesa Public Library, White Rock Branch Library, Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center, Chamber of Commerce, KANDU Center, Betty Ehart Senior Center and White Rock Senior Center.
