It's all about the kids today, at the Benton County Fair.  It's Saturday, and you know they're ready to get out of the house!

Register the kids for the 'Kids Pedal Tractor Pull', you never know - they might be really good at it!  Or just buy the kids a $20 wristband for unlimited rides, and watch them go nuts.  But whatever you do, don't miss the Demolition Derby at 6:30pm. Make sure you cheer on Car #27- It's our buddy Jason, the Manager of the Casey's Convenience store next to the radio station!

But don't leave the grown-ups behind, because there's a ton of stuff for them, too.  The whole family can take part in the 'Farm Bureau Scavenger Hunt', and everyone will love the 'Minnesota Sea Of Life Aquarium'.  There is a Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament (1pm), bingo all day long, and lots of live music.  "Switch" will close out Saturday at the fair, with a concert on the Beer Garden Stage.

Here is a list of events today and Sunday.
