County Fair

This week I chose "County Fair" by Joe Walsh. The Walsh tune off of the Album "So What" is the perfect name for this week, as the majority of my weekend was spent at the Bottineau County Fair--the oldest county fair in the state of North Dakota.

I took all kinds of pictures from the demo derby, rides and entertainment.

I have lots of pictures from Thursday's amateur night and the demo derby that was on Sunday. I have another busy week ahead, and I thought that the summer was going to be easier. I was wrong.

Here are my pics:

Bottineau's Kayla Graber sings on stage to close the night last Thursday at the Bottineau County Fair's 22nd annual amateur night.

Brittain Grubb sings to open the amateur night.

Kendra Slaubaugh of Hazen, who won the junior division, performs Thursday.

A young lady from Westhope belts out her best last Thursday.

Kendra Slaubaugh and her younger sister Crystal do a Justin Bieber imitation.

Bottineau native Kylie Artz sings "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

Maxbass' Chris George, who won the senior division, sings on stage at the fair.

Katja Bartsch belts out a hit last Thursday. Bartsch is a student at Bottineau High School.

Shane Parsons from Sunny 101.9 wows the crowd with his medley of hits.

Parsons tries to pump the crowd up during his performance.

Two derby cars collide back bumpers last Sunday during the Bottineau County Fair demo derby.

Darrin Nelson awaits the green flag to begin the demo derby Sunday.

Wet conditions made the derby pit ripe for mud slinging.

Nelson gets sandwiched by two other derby cars.

This time it was Jackson Bernstein who was in the middle.

This car nearly got tipped during the herby derby portion of the demo derby last Sunday.

Levi Kippen's herby derby car looks in rough shape late in the derby.

Herby derby winner Randy Sivertson plows into second place Travis Wettlaufer near the end last Sunday.
