The Rice County Fair is underway, and if you are looking for a toe-tapping time, or a cold beverage, the place to be is the beer gardens, which has no cover charge. There are plenty of fun things to do, both free and paid, including the entertainment in the beer garden if you are of age.

On Thursday evening, Mitch Goudy & Diana Upton-Hill perform in the beer gardens playing acoustic guitar and singing. On Friday night, don't miss Minnesota native country singer-songwriter and guitarist Devon Worley and her band kicking things up with a classic rock and country mix.  Longtime local favorites Mr. Peabody plays on Saturday night.

For those that are looking for other entertainment, there is a euchre tournament at 1:30PM Thursday, Texas Hold Em' on Friday at 1:30PM and happy hour is each day from 3-5:30PM.

Other fun things to check out are the midway filled with rides and free entertainment stages.
