Olivia Rose Jobe

Age: 17

Hometown: Hampton

Parents: Jeff Jobe

Jobe’s favorite thing about the Franklin County Fair was when she went to see the bear show with her dad and friends. She thoroughly enjoyed the large animals and was enamored with how they interacted with their handlers. In a minute of rash adoration she decided to take a photo with the bears. She clamored onto the box next to the bear, and separated only by glass she was able to see the animal up close. She instantly fell in love with how the bear looked and how calm it seemed. Throughout the week she visited the show multiple times just to catch a glimpse of the beautiful ani-mal.

Hometown: Bradford

Parents: Brian and Lisa Flack

Flack’s favorite thing about the Franklin County Fair is hanging out with friends and family. Her favorite memory is getting ice cream and a bag of the really good kettle corn every night before the grand-stand event. Then the group heads into the grandstand event and everyone sits as a group and has a good time. As the night goes on the group gets bigger and bigger, sitting up in the bleachers. It is what she looks forward to every year at the fair.
