Fair just a few days away

HURON COUNTY —The tents are up as the Huron Community Fair is just days away from opening its midway rides, games and other activities which bring people through the gates year after year.

In an effort to help fair-goers enjoy the activities at this year’s fair without the strain on their pocketbook, fair board members have set one price, $12 per person, for each day/night for rides along the midway.

Don Wheeler, fair board member, said the reduced price for midway rides is something he and fellow board members thought would help families who are looking for a place close to home to bring their kids for a day of fun.


While the fair kicks off officially on Sunday with the unloading of the livestock, the midway rides won’t open until 1 p.m. on Tuesday, and will open at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The midway will open at noon on Saturday.

Wheeler said Elliott’s Amusements are providing the rides and offer the $12 price on Tuesday and Saturday each year. As for the other days throughout the week, Wheeler said a number of local businesses — including McDonald’s Food and Family Center, Talmer Bank, Heritage Sustainable Energy, and the Huron Community Fair board — are picking up the additional cost of lowering the ride prices.

Due to the contract the fair board has with Elliott’s Amusement to provide the rides, it can’t reduce the cost from $15 to $12 each day without someone or some businesses picking up the extra costs.

“Thankfully, we have these businesses that have come forward to help us out,” said Wheeler. “Our goal for the fair is to have a fun place for people to come and have a good time.”
