Today is "Senior Citizen's Day" at the Benton County Fair, and Ricky Woods will be doing her show 'live', from 10-2.  Peter K will be checking in this afternoon, on the Ty James Traffic Jam. While we're there, stop by and visit- we'll be handing out those coveted Golden Scoops for The River Bats Diamond Dig this Saturday night! To get one, just say "The RIVER BATS ROCK!" to one of the MIX Entourage and we'll hook you up with a scoop and a ticket for the game.

The afternoon and evening are filled with exciting and fun events, once again.  Among those, is the 4-H Aerospace Show, in the Horse Arena at noon.

There will be lots of good, live, music on the Cottonwood Stage today.  Come see the barber shop quartet, The Overtones, as well as the St. Cloud Area Fun Singers.  At 4pm is the show "Friends In Harmony", and at 7pm is the talent show - all on the Cottonwood Stage.

The Pig Races are back, and starting at 6pm, the "all-ride wristbands" get you unlimited rides on the Midway.
