I've attended the Aitkin County Fair almost every year as long as I can remember.
Read the rest here.
First we would walk through the 4H and industrial buildings, get food, look at animals, then, finally, ride the rides. When I was a child, the buildings held little interest, except for saying hi to my grandfather, Dean Sanford, at the Minnesota Deer Hunters' Association booth. Now I’m older I find more than the rides and animals interesting but the industrial buildings are still where I’d spend the least time, preferentially. But that’s where I spent the most time this year, because for the first time, I volunteered at a booth.
