The University of Georgia veterinary students are conducting a traveling medicine show and old-fashioned fair at Tanglewood Farms in Canton Saturday. The vet students are raising money for their annual mission trip to Navajo and Apache nations of Arizona and New Mexico where they minister to the Native Americans through Bible study, veterinary care, cooking, and animal husbandry classes. The fair at Tanglewood’s Wild West Town has games, face painting, food and special Native American guests. Native American interpreter and storyteller Irving Standing Chief, pictured, will share his knowledge of the history of America’s first people. There will be Native American artisans creating authentic arts and crafts. Traditional drum music will be played throughout the day. Tanglewood Farm is home to more than 150 miniature farm animals including horses, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats, pigs, buffalo and more. The fair is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is a $5 donation. The Petting Zoo admission is $10. Veterans are free with proper identification. The farm is located at 171 Tanglewood Drive. For more information, call (770) 667-6464.
