My guest on today's AM Minnesota Program will be Rice County Fair Manager John Dvorak. John stopped by KDHL studios last week and he said that hopefully construction on the new historic barn on the fairgrounds will begin this week. The Rice County Fair received a grant from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to build the 1920's era barn for educational purposes. It will be a nice addition to the Rice County Fair plus it can be used throughout the year by the Rice County Historical Society.

If you would like to get excited about the Rice County Fair be sure to check out their web site: ricecountyfair.org. Tara does a nice job keeping the web site up to date. There are some great pictures of last years Rice County Fair. In addition all the schedules, exhibitor information, grandstand events, free entertainment, entry forms, it is all on the web site. Yes, we are counting down to the 2018 Rice County Fair!
