We're certainly in the midst of fairtime in Southeastern Minnesota. Both the Rice County Fair in Faribault and the Dodge County Fair in Kasson begin Wednesday.

The Dodge County Fair bills itself as the oldest county fair in the state. Grandstand entertainment this week includes the bull riding challenge, barrel racing and mutton busting on Wednesday night starting at 7PM. Thursday's Grandstand attraction will be the Thunderbird Open Stock Car Races at 7PM. The Tri-State Tractor Pull is set for Friday night at 7PM. Saturday morning starts off with the free Antique Tractor Pull at 10AM with the Demo Derby at 6:30PM Saturday night. The Grand Stand entertainment wraps up with the MNLMRO Lawn Mower Races on Sunday at 3PM.

A full slate of the planned activities can be found at the Dodge County Fair website.
