Minco will host the annual Northern District Fair this month. It will be held Friday, Aug. 17 to Saturday, Aug. 18 at Minco High School.
“Minco, Tuttle and Amber alternate in hosting the fair every year,” said Minco Fair Board Treasurer Michelle Hickey said. “Minco last hosted the fair in 2009.”
Hickey said some of the exhibits will open on Aug. 17 at 1 p.m. and the talent pageant will also take place that day.
“The majority of the events will be held on Saturday starting at 8 a.m.,” Hickey said. “The swine show will start at 8 a.m. and the horse show will be held at 9 a.m. Entries will be held about an hour before each event.”
Hickey said fair books will be available at Minco businesses with schedules and more information.
