Rabbits at Berrien County Youth Fair

I spent my morning in Berrien Springs, Mich. for the county’s youth fair. The writer and I decided to cover the rabbit show after the event we originally had planned to cover turned out to not be until Thursday morning. I haven’t had the chance to cover very many county fairs this summer, but I’ve enjoyed the rare opportunity to wear my cowboy boots in public.
