(Video) Raptor Center at the fair

The University of Minnesota Raptor Center was at the Pope County Fair last weekend. They gave a nice presentation and showed a number of raptor animals to fairgoers in the main office building garage. Below is a high-definition video of part of the presentation featuring a bald eagle.

Currently the Kandiyohi County Fair is underway in Willmar. Their fair board had a large advertisement using up almost an entire page in the August 3 issue of the Bonanza Valley Voice. We appreciate the support of our hometown newspaper! We will be posting weather-related announcements regarding the Kandiyohi County Fair today and through the weekend.

Below is the schedule plus an advertisement for the Little Theater play "Three Murders, and It's Only Monday" that is directed by B-B-E 1996 graduate Thom Rosengren. You can click on the graphic and enlarge it for best viewing.

Tonight is the Kandiyohi Racing Association (KRA) races at the fairgrounds. I learned this morning that Willmar took a heavy rainfall last night, and the status of the races is currently up in the air.
