TROY - Fran Stretch of Laceyville attended the Troy Fair Tuesday, and she admits that it's the animals that draw her interest.

She's been coming to the fair for about six years.

"I like to watch the shows and see all the animals," she commented.

So, what does she like? The cows? The pigs? The rabbits?

None of the above.

Her favorites are the goats and sheep.

"They look good, all groomed up," she said.

"The 4-H kids do a great job," she added.

She attended the fair Tuesday with her kids, Joe and Mary; a nephew, Jacob Hart; and a friend, Kahlan DeLamarter.

Stretch and her group were spending some time at the bingo games at the fair.
