Todd County Fair week was one of my favorite weeks every year growing up. In high school, I spent my summers working for Todd County 4-H so fair week was our version of the Super Bowl. There is so much work that goes into making the fair happen, and it doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you to everyone who helps set up, clean up, work booths, organize events, performs, and participates in all things Todd County Fair.
