The fair starts on Thursday night with the Twilight Parade and runs through Saturday and Sunday with demon- strations,


food, en- tertain- ment

and ends with a Saturday

night live-

stock auc- tion. The new book has sever- al old photos and interviews


some of the origi- nal participants. One of the highlights of the fair in the early days, at least for the young women according to a few memories, was that the girls were allowed to wear pants to school on fair day. The book also includes copies of the first five years of fair programs. The programs, themselves, tell interesting stories about the businesses in town at the time. For anyone not able to attend
