Rice County Fair Secretary John Dvorak stops by KDHL to give us a preview of the excitement that starts tomorrow in Faribault.

There was a rumor that the fair was not going to have a carnival this year but that is absolutely false as you can see by the pictures I took this morning on the fairgrounds with Gold Star Amusements getting ready to set up the rides at the Rice County Fair.

The rides begin Wednesday, but the fair still has great food available and of course the crowning of a new fair queen happens Tuesday night on the Bruce Sellner Memorial Stage.

There is a lot of activity going on the fairgrounds today.

When I was out there early this morning, they were setting up picnic tables near the Cardinal Cafe and getting the exhibit buildings set up.

John's phone was ringing off the hook so we appreciate taking time from all the hectic activity to join us and give you a preview of the Rice County Fair.
