Baltimore Sun Media Group multimedia journalist Jen Rynda spent 24 hours with a 4-H family during the first day of the Howard County Fair, which is celebrating its 70th year this week. Rynda followed the King family, of Woodbine — Teresa and her daughters Rachel, 16, and Nicole, 15. The King family sleeps in a camper at the fair in order to take care of their animals late at night and early in the morning. They participate in several contests as well, including the Miss Howard County Farm Bureau pageant. Flip through the photos for an detailed account of the family’s day, and check out the video below.
Patuxent photographer Sarah Pastrana spent some time at the Howard County Fair last week, looking for its more interesting characters. With the help of photographer Jen Rynda on the editing side, they produced six video vignettes in which the photos literally come to life. Click here to see them all.
