(ABC 6 News) -- It's officially county fair time, with the kick-off of one fair in our region.
The Worth County Fair in Northwood began Wednesday and will run through Sunday. Grandstand entertainment includes bull riding, a lumberjack show, tractor pull and demolition derby.
There are also many activities for kids such as face painting, caricatures, a kiddie barn and Nick’s Kid’s Show.
And if the fair food isn't enough of a reason to bring you out, this year the Worth County Fair is bringing in a few new attractions for fair-goers.
“This year we have the Ninja Experience, which is brand new; that’s a five-day show, that’s going to be two shows during the week and three shows every weekend. We have the Agri-Puppets which is brand new this year; that’s a puppet show,” said Chad Nelson, president of the fair board.
The fair is also an important time for members of the Worth County 4-H. Julie Tweeten has a family history in 4-H.
“Support your local fair, so that the 4-H kids continue to have an opportunity to showcase all their talent and their livestock. If we don’t support out local fairs, then pretty soon they’ll disappear and we won’t have that opportunity, so I would say come out and support your local fair so that it can continue for generations to come,” Tweeten said.
This is Worth County’s 141st annual fair. The fairgrounds boasts a one-mile walking trail and 24 camper pads for fair fans who choose to camp on the grounds.
