WILLMAR — Area 4-H members packed up their animals and exhibits Wednesday morning and left on the trips they won to the Minnesota State Fair.

The State Fair trips are awarded to members who win top honors at county fairs. The trips allow 4-H members to compete with others from around the state.

The fair opens today and will run through Labor Day. During that time, the fair usually welcomes nearly 1.8 million visitors to its 320-acre grounds.
