Emmet-Charlevoix County Fair Prepares for Fun-Filled Week

The Emmet-Charlevoix County Fair is getting ready for a fun-filled week.

Over 200 volunteers are helping put on this year’s fair.

The events began Monday afternoon with the swine show, but the real fun starts Tuesday.

That’s when the carnival and animal shows begin.

Organizers say they expect over 23,000 people this year.

“We showcase agriculture in our area. People get a taste of what it is. A lot of people don’t get to see farm animals anymore. We have a little bit of everything for everybody. We have the grandstand events, we have rides, we have good food, so we try to have something pleasing for a little bit of everybody,” explained Agnes Shaw, the fair manager.

The fair runs until Sunday.
