Proud parents, family members and friends crowded around the tent Friday to check on their students and livestock at the Youth Livestock Auction at Fuji Park during the Carson City Fair.

Children and teens from Northern Nevada lined up firmly with goats with beautiful coats and one newborn lamb not yet two days old was making a public appearance.

Other visitors to the fair enjoyed other sights, including tractors, wares including locally-made jewelry and house goods, booths sponsored by Carson City’s businesses such as Kona Ice and familiar nonprofits and other artists.
