I've been going to the Carlton County Fair almost every summer for as long as I can remember.  One of the things I love the most about the fair (aside from the food) is the atmosphere.  The 4-H building, the animals, the races, the rides, I love it all!  Check out the Carlton County Fair this year if you've never been.  There's something for everyone!
