The Becker County Fair opens its doors. Rides are set up and food vendors are gearing up for what hopes to be a busy weekend. The fair features a brand new ferris wheel this year that has only been used at a few other fairs. This year there will be more talent besides your ordinary grand stands like a hypnotist, magic, and comedy. Fair officials say the fair is a great way for the community to come together and have a good time. Fair manager Bob Sonnenberg tells us what his favorite part of the fair is.

Bob Sonnenberg – Fair Manager: “People having fun, smiling people, and kids getting their ribbons. If they get a ribbon or a trophy that kid walks around with it, puts it in their pocket.”

The fair runs thru Saturday.
