Kids, come on out!!!
A special Kid's Day will be observed in your honor at the Red River Valley Fair on Tuesday, July 13, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Scheduled to appear are Penny & Pals, entertainers from the Heritage Baptist Church, Danno's Karaoke, and more.
Murphy Brothers Exposition is also offering Two for Tuesday carnival wristbands. Fairgoers purchase one carnival wristband at $30 and they receive one free wristband. They must buy the carnival ride passes on grounds that day. Another option for Two for Tuesday is the 2-for-1 gate admission. Fairgoers can pick up a voucher at any Stop-N-Go store and bring it to the gates that day to receive the promotion.
"Everyday is Kid's Day at the Fair, but it's a true treat to have a day that is set aside with extra kid friendly activities" said Fair Assistant General Manager Jodi Buresh. "Kids bring life and excitement to the Fair. They are the ones who enjoy coming out here, riding the carnival rides, and playing the games. We should give them a day that's dedicated to them."
New to Kid's Day is the Meet and Greet Real Life Heroes which will take place from 1 to 3 p.m., between the Morton and Degelman Buildings. Scheduled to appear are representatives from the Cass County Sheriff's Department, Cass County Electric Co-op, FM Ambulance, West Fargo Fire Department, and General Equipment & Supplies, Inc.
