John Dvorak the Rice County Fair manager will be my guest on today's AM Minnesota program for Fair Talk. The 2018 Rice County Fair is only about 3 months away even though the weather feels like it will be much longer! John stopped by KDHL studios last Friday and hinted that there would be some type of announcement on today's program. I was not in the studio Friday but Gordy told me something new and "big" was going to happen before the Rice County Fair?

I do know that John and the Rice County Fair board are always looking for ways to improve the Rice County Fair. They spend time researching, filling out grant applications and talking with potential sponsors. Much of this work is done in the background and most visitors are not even aware of it! We just go and enjoy a great fair!  So, thank you to John and the rest of the volunteers on the Rice County Fair Board for all you do and tune in at 9:30 this morning!
