The U.P. State Fair, going on at the Escanaba fairgrounds, is getting bigger and even better! Now that the state doesn’t fund the event, it seems like it is doing even better with more buildings being added and more attractions.
My family has brought our camper down and camped out at the fair for 13 years and this past Sunday was no different than before. I was at Noah’s Ark so I couldn’t help, but my family packed up the camper and brought it down to the fairgrounds to claim our spot. Then they got our pigs loaded into the trailer and brought them to the fair.
After settling everybody in, the pigs got a bath. The swine show will be Wednesday morning and the auction will be on Saturday. For a full list of events going on down in Escanaba go to upstatefair.org!
In the grandstands today Scott Murray will be presenting the Sick Air Extreme Motorcycle Show at 7 p.m.
Don’t forget, the Eli Young Band will be there Wednesday and Thompson Square will be there Thursday!
