Ashlynne Blanton gets comfy at the livestock showing at the Manatee County Fair. TIFFANY TOMPKINS-CONDIE/Bradenton Herald


Sounds of the midway and lowing cattle filled the chilly night air Wednesday night in the Mosaic Arena at the Manatee County Fair.

Ashlynne Blanton, perhaps tuckered out from all the hard work, found a bit of space near her heifer to unwind. Livestock shows, music, rides, whip-popping, fair food; enough activities to wear out the young and old alike.
