North American Midway Entertainment crew members spend Wednesday morning polishing Merry-Go-Round horses, arranging stuffed animals at game booths, making cotton candy and checking carnival rides in preparation for Wednesday afternoon’s start of the 158th annual Bureau County Fair in Princeton. The fair continues through Sunday, with special events scheduled for each day, including a country show by Justin Moore on Friday evening, a truck/tractor pull on Saturday and a Sunday countywide worship service. As always, fair-goers can also spend their time enjoying the wide range of entries in the exhibit halls and livestock barns, free entertainment shows, and just visiting with friends.
