See you at the fairgrounds!
Events just keep happening at the Bureau County Fairgrounds. You might think that after the 157th Bureau County Fair was completed the fair board would just relax until next August. But that never happens. We just finished the four-weekend run of the ninth season of Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road. It was, again, a very successful event with thousands of people coming to the fairgrounds to be scared. Thanks to all of the volunteers who help make this event the success it is. The “Spook Crew” is already planning for next year’s 10th anniversary event.
Today, Saturday, there will be two pigeon shows at the fairgrounds. The Mid American Pigeon Show will be held in one heated exhibit hall, and a Modena Pigeon Show will be in another hall. Admission is free for both shows. Also this weekend, campers, boats and motorhomes can be put into winter storage on both Saturday and Sunday. See www.bureaucountyfair.com for the prices and the contract.
The Huge Winter Garage Sale will be two days, Nov. 9-10, with doors opening at 8 a.m. Admission is free but please bring a donation of canned food for our local food pantry. Spaces are still available if you have items you would like to sell. Call Nancy at 815-303-2905 to sign up.
