SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A sweet tradition continues at the Sullivan County 4-H Fair, breaking records and making a difference in the community.

Every year the Sullivan County Farm Bureau sells $1 milkshakes at the fair.

This week the Bureau broke a record for the number of milkshakes sold in a day. The previous record was 1,424 milkshakes sold in a single day. But Tuesday, that record was broken by selling 1,525 milkshakes.

That record didn’t last for long, however, on Wednesday, the Bureau raised the bar even higher by selling 1,539 milkshakes. Farm Bureau President Rusty Deckard said the milkshakes are one of the things fair-goers look forward to every year.

“Over the years they would ask queen candidates, what’s their favorite part of the fair. It’s almost always the milkshakes from Farm Bureau,” said Deckard.

The money raised helps to support Sullivan County 4-H. Deckard said he is thankful to volunteers who help sell the milkshakes and to the community for its continuing support.

“We have a great little fair here. We have a great deal with our milkshakes here from Farm Bureau and I’m always happy to be out here and see the smiles on people’s faces.”

The fair continues through Saturday.
