Turning our attention to the state fair

The county fair finally arrived, something we have waited for each year to move into our fairgrounds. The fair is now over, but with the excitement still running through our veins, we are now looking forward to an even bigger and greater fair.

It’s our own Minnesota State Fair.

We will leave at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27  from the Walmart parking lot. Call 507-438-3946 for more information.
