Grandstand to arrive Wednesday, with assembley starting Thursday

Published 3:05pm Tuesday, June 25, 2013

The new grandstand will arrive at the Mower County Fairgrounds Thursday — in pieces.

Public Works Director Mike Hanson told the county board Tuesday the structure will be delivered Wednesday and crews will start assembling it Thursday.

Hanson said it should take about two to three weeks to assemble, if the weather cooperates.

The 1,500-seat grandstand, which will be made of steel and aluminum, should be completed by Aug. 1 in time for the 2013 fair.

The old grandstand was demolished in a controlled burn after a structural engineer deemed it unsafe for use before the 2012 fair.
