The Parks and Marine Management touch tank will be on site to get a feel for ocean life.Attendees can wander through the exhibit hall, with its new doors, admiring island produce, houseplants, handi-crafts, and baking. Also, don’t forget to stop by the tractor display!There will be additional pens and cages to accommodate more poultry and livestock this year, said Ms Louis, who confirmed there will be a Nigerian Dwarf goat to visit.The fair will wrap up around 5 pm.
