Fair replaces carnival with Grass Stage

Thursday, February 1, 2007

The 2007 Buena Vista County Fair will be held Thursday, July 19, Sunday, July 22.

This year the Fair Board would like the communities of Buena Vista County to become more involved. If you have a club, association, team, or just a fun group of people, the fair is looking for fun contests, booths to set up around the new "Grass Stage" (where the carnival used to be).

Some examples: the school band boosters to host a pie eating contest, the athletic boosters to hold a gunny sack race, the town government officials to have a dunk tank, etc. "We want to bring the fair back to the whole county," the board said, "Doesn't that sound like fun?"

For more information contact the Buena Vista County Fair Board President Randy Robbins,(712) 286-5018 or robnsfam@ncn.net, or see the website at:
