Countdown continues for start of county fair
ELLSWORTH -- Cotton candy, Ferris wheels, clowns, rides, cattle, homemade cakes and pies. Everyone remembers these county fair staples from childhood. It’s an American family tradition.
The first such fair in Pierce County was in 1859 but held in Prescott.
Prescott was also the county seat at that time. The Agriculture Society sponsored the County Fair and moved it to Ellsworth in 1884 where it continues to this day.
