Are you a youth who loves animals that are soft, have two giant ears, and a cottontail? If you said yes, then the Currituck County 4-H Youth Rabbit Show is just the event for you! N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will be hosting the 2018 Currituck County 4-H Rabbit Show on September 15, 2018, during the Currituck Heritage Festival. The Currituck Heritage Festival will be held at the CCRC (Currituck County Rural Center) located at 184 Milburn Sawyer Road, Powells Point, NC 27966. The rabbit show is open to youth ages 5-18, and participants must provide their own rabbits. Youth participating in a show gain valuable communication skills through interactions with the judge and their fellow competitors and enhance their overall knowledge of small animal husbandry and showmanship.
