Northwestern Michigan Fair Celebrates its 102nd Year

Benzie, Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties have come together for the area's largest summer fair. The 102nd Annual Northwestern Michigan Fair kicked off this weekend just south of Traverse City. The three county fair will run through Saturday and has a schedule full of events including professional FMX freestyle motorcycle shows and Tough Trucks stunt shows. Today's events focused on the 4-H Club as the day's schedule consisted of rabbit and goat shows with dozens of different animals on show for the public. County fairs are known for the shows and the rides but the Northwestern Fair has a bit of a different agenda. The carnival rides and games will officially open tomorrow evening at 5 PM.
