High times at the county fair


The 2014 Wright County Fair was graced by great weather and good fortune as more than 61,000 fairgoers filed through the gates of the fairgrounds in Howard Lake Wednesday through Sunday of last week. Temperatures stayed relatively low in 2014, attendance was healthy, events went off without a hitch, and the folks who flocked to experience a wide array of attractions and events did not come away disappointed. 
Fair Board Secretary Dennis Beise reported that once again, Friday night’s demolition derby was a sellout, the combine derby and tractor pull also had an excellent turnout, and vendors, too, were happy with this year’s turnout.
“It was just a good fair all around,” he said, “just a good old county fair.”
Maria Zaske of Maple Lake was named one of this year’s Wright County Fairest of the Fair Ambassadors, along with Amy Marquette of Buffalo and Chelsea Menshausen of Monticello.
