It was a sweltering opening day at the Polk County Fair in Fertile Wednesday at the Fairgrounds. The fun continues through Sunday with grandstand entertainment Thursday with the Rodeo, Baja Racing Friday and Saturday, and the Demo Derby Sunday. They’ll also have kids’ bike drawings, kids’ pedal pull, BINGO, and Worship Service. Pictured here, Axl and Jett Page cautiously feed an ostrich at the petting zoo.
