The annual, Grand Forks County Fair is off and running in the northern valley. This year it's offering more rides and all kinds of entertainment for the entire family.
One of the most popular attractions at the fair is the Petting Farm. It lets everyone get up close and personal with all kinds of animals. Owners, Connie and Bunky Boger of Arkansas are on the road 10-months a year, bringing the farm to town across America.
Connie Boger, Petting Farm: "I try to explain to kids that your milk doesn't come from Walmart. It comes from a cow. This is where it all started. Our Country was founded on agriculture. So, we need to stay that way."
Connie, along with her husband, a crew of six helpers and over 200 animals make their way around the Country using 4-semi trucks and a pickup. Connie also cooks all the meals for the crew… everyone helps out feeding the animals.
Connie Boger: "We're used to it. But, yeah it gets a little long. The challenges of the weather presents probably the hardest part of it."
And of course, there's the rest of the fair.
Brandis Lafrombois, Fair Manager: "We're so excited the Murphy Brothers have brought in 10 more rides this year. We have a kids day on Saturday. Today's opening day of course. We have "The Voice" starting at 7 p.m.. It's a local talent singing competition."
And all kinds of other events and entertainment run through Sunday.
