Local Fair yearly highlight

The present Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo was officially dedicated on July 17, 1967, after the venue enjoyed an approximate 60-year run in a Fargo location.

The annual event is still going strong with the 2010 version set to begin Friday, July 9, and continue through Saturday, July 17, with a boat load of family-oriented activities sure to engage the interest and attention of everyone.

One first-time endeavor, sure to be a real crowd pleaser whether you are a kid or still a kid at heart, is the Days of the Dinosaur spectacular occupying Schollander Pavilion, that will be available for viewing and participation all week long.

Also worthy of mentioning is a performance by a 2005 West Fargo high grad many of you are already probably familiar with. Talented musical artist Angela Hunt, daughter of Dan and Sherri Hunt, formerly o f West Fargo, will be appearing Saturday, July 10, at 3 p.m. on the Main Stage along with three other Fargo artists. Angela's music has been played on Y94 and she is working on an upcoming CD.
