Officials of the Minnesota State Fair want to assure fairgoers that the Midway rides are safe. State Fair general manager Jerry Hammer says the Great Minnesota Get-Together does everything possible to make sure its rides are safe.
This week in our "Behind the Scenes" series on WJON, we join the fun at the Benton County Fair and see how they go about setting up all of the weeks entertainment. From games, rides, food and displays a lot of man hours go into setting up for the week long celebration.
It's day four of the Benton County Fair, and just like the days before, there is a lot to see. Some new attractions in the line up today included the Reptile and Amphibian Discovery Zoo, and Chainsaw Carvings.
