Scott Wick, Sioux Empire Fair Manager, says the fair is about to begin!

"We have a sneak a peek at 5 p.m.on Friday.  It's a free gate---the mid way will be up and running and all the rides will be going.  The food vendors will be operating as well.  We invite everyone to come by!"

Scott says preparations for next year's fair are already underway.  "We're planning for the 2014 fair looking at different talent and watching who's hot.  With our free concert format with paid gate admission, you are getting the best value there is.  We're really excited about this year's line up.  We do have 1 pay concert on Saturday.  But from Sunday through the following Friday, all the concerts are free with the 7 dollar gate admission.  We have big country names Kit Moore and Hunter Hayes scheduled at the fair."

The Sioux Empire Fair is a 10 day event.
