More than a fair time (slideshow)

Families found another great time at the 141st Chisago County Fair in Rush City. While the heat and humidity made the early goings almost unbearable for many, especially the animals in the 4-H barns and show arena, comfortably warm weather did arrive in time for the weekend.

As is tradition, locals entered their favorite foods, artwork and projects for competition. Carnival games and rides were on hand, and so were plenty of kids activities — particularly on Saturday when people also found their spots along Main Street for the parade.

Local service organizations kept busy offering refreshments and more at the fairgrounds. Thrill seekers found their thing at the grandstand where moto-cross, tractor pull and demolition derby events, and even a lawn mower race, were held.
