We have been busy preparing for the fair to make it a great experience for everyone. We are excited to offer $5 armbands for a new type of inflatable carnival. We had a great response to last year’s and decided to make it even better this year. This year your $20 fair ticket will get you into two nights of races, two nights of rodeo, demo derby, and two nights of monster trucks. That’s only $2.85 per event! You can’t go anywhere for that price. Join us on the midway for a great lineup of bands – and that’s free! Food vendors will be there to feed your hunger. Stop by and play a game of laser tag, ride the virtual reality roller coaster, or watch Jason D’Vaude juggle fire. Be sure to watch some of the many   4-H shows going on or stroll through the exhibits in the Schenk and Unrein buildings. Your presence at the fair means so much to all the    4-Her’s.
