As a college student I’m always looking for good deals, but it seems to get harder and harder to find actually free activities.

Well the Benton County Fair is one of those rare FREE activities to do with the whole family! The fair is being held July 30th-August 4th in Sauk Rapids, MN.

Check out a show at the beer garden, try your hand at the daily food contests, watch the talent show or a hypnotist, or check out one of the many cool demonstrations in the activity area.

Watch robotics competitions on Friday or Saturday in the Discovery Building, or watch glass blowing demonstrations near the Heritage Building. The Grandstand will feature a motocross event, Demolition Derby, a Truck pull, and a Tractor pull for additional costs.

Whatever your interest, make time to make it out to this FREE event, check out for more information.
