  This will be held on the South Side of our Courthouse Square in Bloomfield. Very easy to find our Courthouse. U.S. Hwy 63 comes right to it in the Center of town. It will be held on Franklin street. First and foremost if you feel ill then do not come to our event please. All exhibitors and attendees need to bring a mask and wear it. Social distancing will need to be practiced. We want to have our event and not upset people in our community. If we all show that we are taking precautions to safely do this then it will be a fun day for all. We will not be offering food or drink this year so bring your own if you wish. No alcohol allowed. There are eating establishments on the square or nearby for food and drink. All are within easy walking distance. Also exhibitors and attendees should bring their own chairs because we will not be setting up bleachers this year to help with the social distancing. Exhibitors should plan accordingly on clothing since this will be out in the wide open come rain or shine. No pre-registering is required. Our registration fees continue to be the same. $15 per class except no fee on Tomato. Exhibitors can weigh more than one fruit per class and only pay the 1 registration fee for that class. 1 exhibit will be entered toward placing and prize money and the others would be exhibitions only. All will be officially weighed or measured and entered on the GPC web site.  Green Squash will be weighed against AG’s towards prize money. Squash will be entered and placed per the size on the GPC web site under Squash. Howard Dill pumpkin will have to weigh at least 500 lbs to be considered. We will start weighing at 9:00 a.m. and weigh until 12:00 p.m. so exhibitors need to arrive accordingly. Awards and prize money will be handed out after that. All exhibits will be released at 3:00 p.m.
