"The fair has been a part of my entire life my family has participated for 5 generations (2 before and 2 after) and we love the small fair feel and that the board listens to concerns and makes the changes as needed." 

anonymous - Dickinson County

"I'm glad that I can bring my kids back and visit my family in northern Marion County and hit the fair at the same time.  It was a joy for me and my kids now enjoy the Rodeo and livestock exhibits they don't get to see in the city. 

David - Past Marion County 4-H member
