HARTINGTON — Putting this year’s Cedar County Fair together has been more than a little challenging.
Cedar County Ag Society members and other area volunteers have been putting in long hours at the fairgrounds ever since the March floods covered the fairgrounds with several feet of water, causing about $200,000 in damage by wiping out one building and damaging several other structures.
Once the water receded, several inches of mud had to be removed from all the buildings.
If that weren’t bad enough, Ag Society members were forced to change the traditional Midway for this year’s July 17-21 Cedar County Fair.
A 25-foot rock climbing tower, inflatables, maze, 300-foot zip line course, a 40-foot free fall tower, a 12-foot bubble tower and bungejumping will be featured at this year’s Midway. The Midway will open Friday.
“It is a midway which will offer something for all generations,” said Cedar County Ag Society President Greg Heine.
