Fairs Bring Opportunity
ALBERT LEA, Minn. -- We're in the midst of county fair season and many folks are hitting local fairs for the food, rides or live music.
But fairs also have an economic impact on area communities. Fair season provides an opportunity for area businesses to showcase their products and services.
It’s also benefits non-profit organizations.
“All of those organizations use this as an opportunity and in many cases, their single biggest fundraiser, that money turns around and is put back into the community with various programs so that piece is an important part,” Director of the Albert Lea Chamber of Commerce Randy Kehr said.
The Freeborn County Fair starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday.
