Summer in Aberdeen wouldn’t be complete without the Brown County Fair. Along with the carnival, rodeo, grandstand entertainment, Big Air ATV Tour, and other usual activities, there are some new highlights to add to your fair-week agenda on August 13 -19. For the young fair lovers, the Kidz Zone is adding four inflatables, and the carnival will be opening earlier than previous years, starting on Tuesday, August 14 at 1:00 PM. While the kids are having fun, the grown-ups can check out the home brew contest (the winner gets to co-brew a limited edition batch with a brew master at Dakota Territory Brewing that will be sold for a limited amount of time at Slackers after the fair) and the wine and scotch tasting event. A favorite part of visiting the fair is sampling the many food options, and new on the scene this year will be Thai-Style Rolled Ice Cream and Wild Bill’s Old Fashioned Soda. // — Jenny Roth
