Red River Valley Fair seeks artists to decorate flowerpotsThe Red River Valley Fair is hosting a flowerpot decorating contest.
Participants can pick up a flowerpot at the fair office. A $15 deposit is required but will be reimbursed when the pot is returned to the fairgrounds.
Decorations on the pots must be weather-resistant because they will be displayed outdoors, and decorations must be suitable for all ages. Care instructions should also be provided if flowers are included in the pot.
The public will be able to bid on the pots through a silent auction, with half of the proceeds going to the artist.
Applications and more information are available at www.redrivervalleyfair.com, or call the fair office at (701) 282-2200.
The deadline for entries is 4 p.m. July 5.
