The last two weekends in May are once again set aside for Northeast Area Horse Racing at the Brown County Fairgrounds. Spectators can watch both quarter horses and thoroughbreds on the track, and Aberdeen is one of only two sites in the entire state for pari-mutuel wagering. The live races start at 1:00 PM on May 19 and 20, and also during Memorial Day weekend on May 26, 27, and 28.
New this year is the Northeast Area Horse Racing’s inaugural ABREWdeen craft beer event, scheduled for May 26 after the races from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM at the Holum Expo Building. Participants will receive a free sampling glass and have the chance to taste 50 craft beers from both local and national breweries. Live music and bar games will provide entertainment for the evening. // — Jenny Roth
