Four-day Yellow Medicine County Fair begins today

July 26, 2012
By Steve Browne , Marshall Independent

The 123rd Yellow Medicine County Fair in Canby has a new building to house events in.

"It was a Legacy grant," said Julie Saltee, fair treasurer. "We've built a new building and we call it the Heritage Center. This year we'll have new entertainment, more of arts and cultural themes."

The Heritage Center will host exhibits of rope-making, weaving and spinning, stained glass making and the Canby Woodcarvers.

The old building will be used for band concerts featuring Carver Creek Bluegrass, and the Larry Olsen Band's old time sound.

The ImangiNick magic act will also make an appearance and perhaps make a few things disappear.

Saltee said each year the fair committee tries to think of a theme that will rhyme with the year. This year's fair guide features an open faucet with, "Open the valve in two thousand twelve and let the good times flow."
