Madison County Fair Kicks Off Tuesday Night

NORFOLK - The Madison County Fair opens Tuesday on the fairgrounds in Madison.  Fair Board spokesman Linda Haack says tonight is a free night at the fair.  Vendors will be on hand as well as the free "slack rodeo."  Haack explains that a “slack rodeo” is a chance for the guys and gals who didn’t make it into the championship rodeo to show off their skills.  Haack says there is never a gate fee or charge for parking at the Madison County Fair, and trolleys are provided to get people back and forth from the parking area.  MidStates Championship Rodeo takes center stage tomorrow, Thursday and Friday nights, followed by two nights of country music.
