Clay County Fair begins Thursday

Four more days of fair festivities begin Thursday at the Clay County Fair in Barnesville.

The Mighty Thomas Carnival will be in town with a midway and rides beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Starting off the weekend’s events is the Minnesota State Fair Talent Contest at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Band Shelter, which features free entertainment Thursday through Sunday.

An interactive chance at one of those events is Friday’s Ag Olympics. Participants can try their hand at an egg toss, hay stacking, feed-sack races and plenty more farm-friendly contests.

Friday and Saturday evenings also feature two rounds of demolition derbies beginning at 6:30 Friday and 5:30 Saturday.

There’s a host of 4-H events throughout the weekend, as well as a “Pedal Power Pull” for kids ages 4 to 11 Sunday at 1 p.m.

Here are some other events around the area this week:
