BLOOMINGTON – The 91st Annual McLean County Fair got underway Wednesday. Last year was their first time back to normal after COVID and it was a record-breaking year.
This year, they’re hoping to break that record and they have plenty to offer. There are carnival rides, horseback riding, tractor pulls, live entertainment, and you can even milk a cow. Because of the heat, the staff have set up plenty of areas for people to get water and take breaks in the air conditioning.
Mike Swartz, Fair Manager, said “So the same thing we do for people we do for animals. So hydrate the best you can, Get in the shade or air conditioning for the people. And we’re fortunate to have three different locations on our ground. We have a 6,000 foot educational exhibit for people to get in, and it’s air conditioned.”
The fair runs through Sunday. More information can be found at mcleancountyfair.org.
