Organizers feel this year’s fair is on a par with past successes

The fair closed Saturday night at the fairgrounds in northern Willmar.

Some rain Saturday was the only bad weather during the four-day event, which has enjoyed a string of several years with favorable weather, fair board president Darrell Fostervold said Sunday afternoon.
