NEW ULM - From the quiet concentration of kids pedalling their way through the Kids Pedal Pull Tractor competition, to the much noisier roar of the Motocross races on Friday night (below), wheels play a big part at the Brown County Free Fair.
The fair continues today and Sunday. Events today will include the Open Class Horse Show, the FFA and 4-H Swine Shows, the FFA, 4-H and Open Class Goat shows, the 4-H Llama show, the entertaining diving Dock Dogs, and another wheeled event, the Demolition Derby in front of the Grandstand.
