In Harrisburg, this upcoming week is the 102nd annual Pennsylvania Farm Show. Although the show runs from Saturday until Jan. 13, one displayed was unveiled early… a half-ton butter sculpture. It’s made from the milk of Pennsylvania dairy cows (a lot of them) and is a way of showcasing the dairy industry in a fun way. This year’s theme highlights the careers and roles that support the industry, with buttery sculpted people who are shown busy milking cows, delivering to stores, shopping for dairy products, and feeding their families.
The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the nation’s largest indoor agricultural event. It features 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus 300 commercial exhibitors. The show runs Jan. 6 until 13. Admission is free and parking is $15 in Farm Show lots.
