Polk County Fair in Fertile makes a successful return in 2021
Buoyed by favorable weather and a desire to get out and about and see some people after being shut down for a year by the COVID-19 pandemic, Polk County Fair-goers came out in nice numbers in Fertile Wednesday through Sunday at the fairground.
As usual, kids and families checked out the animal barns, enjoyed entertainment, checked out big events at the grandstand, played games, and, of course, enjoyed fair food and beverages. Compared to previous years, there appeared to be fewer rides and games on the midway; the word on the ground was that there was a struggle to find enough carnival/fair staff, but the Times couldn't confirm that as of this writing.
The traditional parade through Fertile helped to wrap up fair festivities Sunday afternoon.
