It's fair time!
The Brown County Fair is right around the corner with the first events starting on Sunday, June 7.
Included in today's edition (July 5) of the Hiawatha World is the Brown County Fair special section, that features local 4-Hers and their projects, along with a schedule of events that continue through Saturday, July 13.
This year's fair has some changes - there will not be a carnival, but the fair board is bringing in some bounce houses and rock wall for Friday night, prior to the parade (also a different night this year). Erik Dylan will finish up this last full day at the fair with free entertainment at 8 p.m.
Most fair events are at the Horton fair grounds, with the horse show scheduled for Babcock Arena at Hiawatha at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
On Monday, scheduled events include a clothing and style revue judging along with judging for projects such as entomology, forestry, geology, robotics, rocketry and wildlife at the Horton Community Building.
On Tuesday, foods judging will kick off the day's events at 9 a.m., with the dog show on the cement platform at 10 a.m.
