Coordinators say the biggest difference between their fair and other is no beer gardens. They say it's a fair that heavily relies on the 4-H side.

But they still have something for everyone, including demolition derbies, rides, and cotton candy.

“We're strictly what they call a regular country fair and we get a lot of people coming out of Fargo-Moorhead now, we got a very safe fair we got a good carnival.”

Tomorrow at 3:30 is the first "Ag Olympics." You'll see things like hay stacking, roping, nail driving and a sunflower seed spitting contest.
