One male and one female royalty winner will be selected on Friday, July 12, with the public portion of the royalty competition beginning at 8 p.m. at Huntington North High School. Although two 4-H competitions, the dog show and the tractor operators' contest, have already been held, the royalty contest serves as the official kick-off to the 2013 4-H fair. Additional livestock shows and judging sessions will be held July 13-19, with fair events moving to Hier's Park, in Huntington, July 20-25.
