Yesterday my wife and I attended the Jackson County Fair where Wenzel Amazements had the midway. The weather was off and on rain while we were there but the rides were spinning despite the weather. Admission for this event was $2 and parking was free.

At the grandstand there was an antique tractor pull taking place, in the arena there was cattle judging, and there was a nice display of antique tractors in a tent.

One area that I was pleased to see was a rather large independent food area with a wide variety of choices for a smaller sized town/fair.

Rides were the busiest while I was there and food was a close second. I didn't see too many playing the games other than the dozers that seemed to be the busiest game in my opinion. Yesterday was a pay one price wristband day for the rides, and the wristband was $13. There also were tickets available for $20 which gave you 22 ride tickets. I do not know how much the individual tickets cost.

Here is what was there..
