GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - One graduating senior shared why being able to auction off her animal at the fair this year means so much.
Lilyanne Golia has had her pig for the last 10 years.
"He means a lot,” said Golia. “He is like my last pig so he gave me a good run."
Golia said not being able to auction off her pig last year due to the pandemic was disappointing.
"It was rough because I put a lot of work into the pig last year and that is a big thing everyone looks forward to is the fair,” said Golia. “Not just for all of us but for all the kids and the fair rides and just the experience."
Many animals will be auctioned off at the Glenn County Fair Saturday.
"I was so happy once we got the news because I was one of the first people to hear that we were actually going to be in here and being able to go in the show ring,” said Golia. “It is my senior year, so I was glad I was able to go and do it one more time. "
Golia said the money she earns will go towards her college tuition.
"I mean it would help out me and my family so much,” said Golia. “I would be the first to go to college in my family for the full four years so I would want to be able to do that for him."
The Junior Livestock Auction will take at the Brawley Saturday at 10 a.m. The auction is in-person and streamed live at EZ2bid.com as buyers can register online anytime.
General admission for the fair is $10 and admission for kids ages 6-12 is $5. The fair begins Thursday and will end on Sunday.
