Rain on Wednesday during set-up day and early Thursday morning prevented the Gopher State Garden Tractor Pull from taking place last night in the grandstand due to wet conditions but the weekend forecast is for dry and sunny weather with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s - almost perfect weather condition for the fair. As of this morning the truck and tractor pull for this evening is still on.
The Ellsworth Funsters announced that the 50th Demoltion Derby scheduled for Saturday evening at the grandstand is not sold out and tickets will be sold Saturday afternoon starting at 3 p.m.
Two more honorees were added to the Kenny Hines Memorial Wall at the Pierce County Fairgrounds on Thursday. Don Berning was a long time horse superintendent for the Pierce County Fair and Marlin Torseth was a former grounds keeper.
