County Fair: Wheel of fortune

Monster trucks took over on Friday night at the Kandiyohi County Fair grandstand.
In the photo, Jon Anderson attacks the junked cars in Zombie Patrol. Anderson, 29, who lives in Blaine, grew up in New London through fifth grade. The first-time fair event drew a crowd estimated at 600-700, similar to the Power Pull on Thursday night, though the adult admission for the big trucks at $15 was nearly twice the admission for the Pull.
