      Ontonagon County Fair offers old-fashioned fun

      The Ontonagon County Fair is in Greenland this weekend and will feature an old-fashioned fair atmosphere with lots of farm animals, crafts, and baked goods.

      The fair opens Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the fairgrounds. There will be ponies, chicks, llamas, pigs, ducks, and even two peacocks. Antique engines will be displayed on the lawn, as well as blacksmithing demonstrations.

      Saturday night, families can enjoy a barn dance that will go until about 9 p.m. There will even be pony rides, train rides, and kids' games.

      "It's just a fun family event," says Gale Kocher, president of the Ontonagon County Fair Board. "There's something to do for all the kids, and it gives everybody a chance to show off their finest, their talents, and the animals. We have 4H kids that work really hard with the animals."

      The fair goes on Saturday and Sunday. The entry fee will be $5 for adults, $3 for kids.
