The Mighty Howard County Fair is underway in Cresco and continues through Sunday.
Last year’s event was cancelled by COVID-19 and Fair Board Executive Secretary Tom Barnes says fair’s like their’s determined the fate of other county fairs for the rest of Summer 2020.
Barnes adds that this year’s June fairs are in a similar situation due to lingering effects of the pandemic.
Barnes says he anticipates the livestock and 4H participation numbers for June fairs to be down slightly, similar to those of 2019, but the numbers will still be good. Despite that downturn, he says he expects great attendance by fairgoers anxious to get out and enjoy the festivities.
