Dalenberg said the fair hasn’t brought in any big acts recently due to the cost.
In the early 1970s, the Golden Wedding Day celebration and the Outstanding Young Citizen Program were started to honor two key demographics — the seniors and youth.
Throughout the years, the fair board has had to replace aging roofs on the buildings, overhaul the electrical systems, and put in a new fence. In 2010, the board planted more trees, and a comprehensive emergency response plan was developed.
“We’ve been fortunate to maintain what we’ve got,” Dalenberg said.
