Get your Cheese Curds!

If the temperatures are soaring, it must be the time of year for the Green County Fair again.

Follow the scent of fried cheese curds and the sound of screaming kids, and you know are heading the right direction. There is something for everyone at the fair. Spend time browsing the 4-H projects in the main pavilion. The kids put many hours into the various photography, woodworking, sewing, cooking and gardening projects.

Stop over in the stock pavilions to see the many varieties of animals out for judging. From rabbits and chickens to yearling cattle all the way up to full sized pigs and milking cows, everything is here. Children are fascinated by the many breeds of each animal.

After seeing the animals, come to the Grand Stand for to listen to Little Texas on Friday evening or Lori Morgan on Saturday evening. There will be Harness Racing and two Demolition Derbies on Sunday.

All week long, the midway will be filled with fun for the kids. Ride the Ferris Wheel, run through the fun house or spin around on the Whizzer. Wristbands for unlimited rides are available each day.

The fair means time for fair food! As always, the local service organizations will be out with local options, so you can at least know your purchase is going to a good cause. Optimist Club fried cheese curds are hugely popular, but don't forget the Green County Ag Chest's cream puffs, the Noon Optimists' brats or the Kiwanis for burger and chips.

Come on down to the fair!
