Harvest Show books are now available. The books have a complete list of classes and rules for the 76th Annual Bent County Harvest Show, which will be Oct. 3-5 at St. Mary’s Hall in Las Animas, located at 714 Elm Avenue. All Bent County residents are eligible to enter exhibits that they have made or grown.

Exhibits may be entered in a wide variety of classes. Two of the largest divisions are Art and Photography, with entries from preschoolers, students and adults. The Harvest Show is known for a large display of beautiful quilts. Last year was the first year for collectibles. The other divisions are: clothing, needlecraft, fancy work, home furnishings, food preservation, baked goods, handicrafts and woodworking, hobbies, collections, antiques, flowers, crops and vegetables. Vegetable decorating classes bring out the fun, creative side of exhibitors. Most divisions offer classes for junior and adult exhibitors.
