It is also Military Appreciation Night, tickets to the rodeo for Military Appreciation night are first-come, first-serve. Following tickets are available at a discount to Military Members.

It was fun to walk the Midway at the Riley County Fair and see it lit up with all the food vendors serving their creations from the classic funnel cake to the over-the-top, and ALL the fried candy bars you can think of!

It was fun to see the Midway lit up with all food vendors serving their creations from the classic funnel cake to the over-the-top food, and ALL the fried candy bars you can think of! There were several local organizations as well at the fair getting in on the fun. On my way to get my funnel cake, I decided to take a quick walk through the area with the carnival games and rides. The familiar sounds of the fair were a very welcome sound after such a tough year.

Make sure to follow the events page on the Riley County Fair website so you don't miss a thing! They have some fun activities planned this year like a cornhole tournament on Sunday. Teams can sign up at 11 am on Sunday and the tournament starts at noon.

I hope everyone makes it out at least for a little bit to the fair and enjoys a fun and safe time while there!
