08/23/2018- There’s still enough summer left for one last celebration. The Marinette County Fair opens today in Wausaukee and features crowd favorites like carnival rides, food, music, and farm exhibits. Mario Ruiz is the Fair Board President and he says the event is a yearly tradition for many families and he expects to see around 20000 people come through the gates over the next four days.
Ruiz says it’s unclear just how far back the Marinette County Fair dates, but he says Board Members work year-round to ensure it continues on for generations to come.
The Marinette County Fair runs through Sunday. Tickets at the gate are $5 daily or $15 for a weekend pass. Sunday’s admission costs just $2. You can see the full fair schedule online at marinettecountyfair.com.
