Caledonia, MN (WXOW) - Live music, bull riding, a tractor pull, and the return of the demolition derby are all designed to make sure this year's Houston County Fair is a success.
Larger than expected crowds attended the first demolition derby at the county fair since 2006.
Although the big events are a draw, one youth development group, which has been around for more than 100 years, helps the fair exist.
Houston County Fair board president Elden Pohlman says that 4-H is the reason for the county fair.
"There's a lot of non-livestock exhibits as well as livestock exhibits. I think 4-H brings a lot of good qualities to the kids. Leadership qualities," said Pohlman.
The animal barns are open during fair hours.
Friday night at the grandstand there's a bull riding competition and on Sunday the field class tractor pull.
