Upper Missouri Valley Fair

Posted: Updated:

The footprint is getting smaller as development moves in closer, but the entertainment at the Upper Missouri Valley Fair is getting bigger with every year.

Board member Scott Haugen says he's expecting 40-50 thousand people through the gates over the long weekend.

Today was set up day --- the gates opened at 5:00.

Each night will feature a live band including country artist Jerrod Niemann on Friday night.

Haugen says the carnival is bigger this year, there are more free stage entertainers and a horse-pull and rodeo.

As the community grows, only parking space is slim --- but Haugen says inside the gates, there's a variety fun.

(Scott Haugen, Upper Missouri Valley Fair) "We tried to make things as well rounded as we can. For our entertainment we have the dueling pianos. The concerts, we decided to go country this year. The livestock is always a big draw. So we try to do something for everyone."

The Johnny Holm Band will take the main stage tonight at 9:00.
