Crow Wing County Fair 2013

     I will soon be setting up my Keller Williams Realty Professionals booth at our Crow Wing County Fair in Minnesota.The Crow Wing County Fair will celebrate its 116th year anniversary in 2013! The fair was organized in 1897 and fairs were held in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes and Crosby before permanently locating in Brainerd in 1937. The 1897 fair was held at grounds owned by M. K. Swartz located just east of the 1900 block on East Oak Street. In 1938 the fair was held at the Brainerd Armory and beginning in 1939 at the Mill Avenue fairgrounds where it was held eacwaiting at the fairh year until moving to its present location at 2000 South 13th Street in 1962. I have been participating in this fair since I was in grade school and pigtails.
     The fair began as an agricultural event for the purpose of providing a place for county residents to exhibit their products. Youth projects such as 4-H and FFA were able to enter and compete for prizes. While many aspects of the fair have changed over the years, the main philosophy remains the same, to provide an opportunity for people to touch base with the agricultural heritage of Crow Wing County.
The Crow Wing County Fair is now among the five largest fairs in Minnesota, with annual exhibits numbering over 6,000 and annual attendance estimated at 100,000.The fair is now an educational non-profit organization.

     I blog from the fair when I am not busy talking to past, present and prospective clients. I will also be posting many photos and maybe a video or two. See you on here or at the FAIR.

Kathleen, What a fun thing to do ... have a booth at the fair. Your participation in the fair since grade school definitely makes you part of the fair.  It only makes sense that you would have a KW booth there as well. May you have fun, meet lot of new people, and reconnect with past clients and friends.  And, of course, may the experience bring you more new business.

It is certainly a fun event- long days and often very warm but still entertaining and rewarding. I am looking forward to next week.
