Friend of the Fair

The Ingham County Fair is very proud to announce Keith & Janie Ferrier as the 2019 Ingham County Friend of the Fair.

Keith and Janie are the “Flower Power” of the fair. They plant and take care of all the flowers and plants all over the fairgrounds-and have done so for many years. The fairgrounds look beautiful thanks to their magic touch. Janie is also an exhibitor in the home arts and the daily cooking contests.

These quiet and unassuming people spend countless hours taking care of these flowers and ask for nothing in return. They have also made numerous donations to the fairgrounds in the way of plants, plant care items, and even the fans we enjoy in the Shirley Clark Pavilion.
