I spent Wednesday from 9 a.m to 10 p.m at the North Idaho Fair and Rodeo. As one of four superintendents in the Draft Horse barn I was out and about on the grounds and visiting with the fair patrons as they came through our barn.
I did not encounter any drunks! And it wasn't until around 8 p.m that I saw the first glass of beer being carried around, when three very pleasant women came through the barn.
The staff, board and volunteers put in many long hours preparing for the fair yearly and spend many hours at the fair daily once it opens. It has always been a "family affair" and will continue to be a "family affair!"
