The Rock County Fair opened Thursday night in Luverne under the threat of thunderstorms, which eventually skirted around Luverne leaving behind sultry, summer-like conditions.
The first night of the 2013 fair saw decent crowds both in the exhibit halls and in the grandstands. Click here for the Figure 8 racing story.
More photos and information will be posted as they come in. The Rock County Star Herald will publish a Fair Winners guide in the Aug. 8 edition featuring 4-H participants and their ribbons.
