It'll be "Fair in February" this Saturday, February 16 at the Stuckemeyer Auction Center in Altamont, and it'll be your opportunity to see a mighty fast horse in the meantime.

Saturday's event will feature a live appearance by Cassis, the fastest heat winner of the 2010 Hambletonian and a career earnings winner of more than half a million dollars.  The event is sponsored by Fair Meadow Farm, located across Route 40 from the Auction Center.

An auction of harness racing equipment, featuring 2013 breeding to Cassis, is planned with proceeds split between the Altamont Fire Department and Effingham County Right-to-Life. 

The event will run from noon to 3pm and will feature free all you can eat ham and beans with grilled hot dogs. 

Others will be displaying merchandise, and the Effingham County Fair Board will be present to share a list of 2013 entertainment.
