All of your favorites from years’ past were back at the Door County Fair when the 150th edition of the event kicked off Wednesday. Under threatening skies the BMX bike show and rides were underway as exhibitors filed into the junior fair and livestock barns to prepare their projects for the event’s five-day run. The night had special meaning to Door County Fairest of the Fair Michaela Guilette, who was “re-crowned” by current Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs Cayley Vande Berg and past Door County Fairest Claire Olson and Junior Fairest Helen Parks. She said it was great to see people instead of just a camera.
Wednesday was also a special night for Wisconsin-based band Boogie and the Yo-Yoz, which made its 10th appearance at the Door County Fair. Thursday marks the first day of exhibiting with judges taking a look at the horse pleasure show, beef, cultural arts, school exhibits, foods, and horticulture. More animal judging will take place on Friday and Saturday. You can find the full fair schedule by clicking this link.
