The Nicollet County Fair got underway on Wednesday in St. Peter, but there was one thing missing: the carnival rides. Crescent City Amusements from Louisiana was a no-show when the fair got started, but replacement rides were set to arrive today (THU). Nicollet County Fair Spokesperson Bill McCabe says that there are plenty of other great events at the fair also, such as Demo Derbies, a Truck & Tractor Pull, and an ATV Pull. McCabe says that Crescent City Amusements told him they were booked in 2 other places for the weekend. Their replacement is a company out of the Twin Cities called “Magic Bounce” that was bringing in around 8 or 9 inflatables for the kids. The Nicollet County Fair runs through Sunday, along with the Brown County Fair in New Ulm and the Carver County Fair in Waconia. KNUJ will be broadcasting from all 3 of these fairs over the next few days.
