Great Northern Fair kicks off in Havre

The Great Northern Fair kicked off Wednesday with the carnival opening, food vendors selling and the people of Hill County and beyond having a good time.

The fair, one of the biggest yearly events in the area, will run through Sunday at the Great Northern Fairgrounds featuring free and paid entertainment, rides, traditional fair food and a host of events like the tractor pull, the demolition derby and rodeos.

Local 4-H participants are also in for a host of animal shows and opportunity to show off this year's projects.

While the fair has only just begun, it seems to be getting good reviews so far with attendees praising the new rides, for children and adults alike.

Duane Ray said the children seem to be having a lot of fun and his cousin Laci Keller Christenson said the fair looks like it's even better than last year.

Hill County Commissioner Jake Strissel was also at the fair Wednesday afternoon and said it looks like there's something for everyone.

"We haven't seen too much of it yet, but so far so good," he said.

Haden Grady, another attendee said he hadn't been to the fair in a few years, since before COVID-19, and it's changed a lot since then, and certainly for the better.

Four days of the fair remain, including today, with much more to come.
