SAUK RAPIDS -- This week in Fun Friday, we visit the Benton County Fair to check out the many exciting rides in town this year.

The midway at this year's fair features enough rides to thrill fairgoers of just about any age. The fair has standards like the Ferris Wheel, Carousel, and Tilt-a-Whirl.

Other attractions for more advanced riders (who have strong stomachs) include the Kamikaze and Zipper, which spins its riders while bringing them around.

The rides at the fair continue on Friday and Saturday at noon and on Sunday from noon until 5:00 p.m.
