Rice County Fair Feature Master Gardeners
Another terrific feature at the Rice County Fair is the "Ask a Master Gardener" University of Minnesota Extension tent outside the Conservation Building.
While walking around the fargrounds in Faribault I stopped by there to see what was happening.
I asked them what question has been asked the most and they said, completely in unison, "Japanese Beetles."
They have some plants to give away including red pepper plants.
I stepped inside the Conservation building where they have some fish in tanks courtesy of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and educational displays from Rice County Soil and Water Conversation District.
Check out the moths display in the Conservation Building.
An awesome butterflies display also.
Larry Richie is back with Orville. Larry says Orville loves girls! Smart guy that Orville!
Not far to the west is the Rice County Sheriff's Office and Faribault Police Department Mobile Incident Command Center. Notice it's parked next to a fire hydrant. I had to text Faribault Fire Chief Dustin Dienst about it.
They have some gifts for the kid's like stickers and bracelets.
Paul LaRoche with the Rice County Sheriff's Office says law enforcement uses their Off-Highway Vehicle a lot.
LaRoche was a guest during the KDHL Fair Talk segment at 11:50 a.m. along with RCF Executive Secretary John Dvorak.
KDHL AM Minnesota from 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. Thursday will feature new Faribault Public Schools Superintendent Jamie Bente and new Middle School Principal Dr. Stacy Fox.
Friday Faribault's relatively new Police Chief John Sherwin has agreed to stop by the KDHL Rice County Fair Booth.
You can stop by and meet these new people in their respecitve jobs at our booth at the fair.
Jerry Groskreutz should be listed here because he is in the Rice County Fair Agriculture Hall of Fame.
