Free youth fair on Sept. 7, 2013
Farmington — If you're 15 years of age or younger — and riding in an airboat and learning about duck hunting sounds like fun — you need to be at the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area on the morning of Sept. 7.
Boats powered by huge aircraft propellers and boats powered by "mud motors" will be available to give you a ride at this year's Youth Fair.

Sept. 7 is the day the Utah Waterfowl Association will host its Ninth Annual Youth Fair.
The free event, which includes a free lunch provided by Camp Chef, starts at 8 a.m. Anyone who is 15 years of age or younger can participate, and each participant will receive a prize. The Division of Wildlife Resources is one of the event's cosponsors.
In addition to eating lunch and participating in a Youth Bow Challenge, the following are among the things you can do at the fair:
Several groups have come together to make the youth fair happen. They include the Utah Waterfowl Association, Sportsman's Warehouse, Fowl Minded, Widow Maker Boats, KSL Outdoors with Adam Eakle, Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife, the DWR, and others.
