Ready, set, county fair time!!

North American Midway carnival worker Tigger Austin spends part of Wednesday morning inflating game prizes for the 159th annual Bureau County Fair in Princeton, which began Wednesday and continues through Sunday. In addition to enjoying the full Midway Carnival with its games, rides and food stands, visitors to the annual fair can view the numerous entries in the fine arts buildings, livestock and animal shows, and evening grandstand shows, including Thursday night’s Beach Boys concert and Friday’s extreme bull riding show. There will also be several free shows throughout the five-day fair as well as free entertainment at the hospitality tent.
