The St. Croix County Fair, held July 16-20 at the fairgrounds in Glenwood City, was rich with traditions new and old this year, including 4-H Junior Fair and Open Class judging; cultural arts exhibitions; musical entertainment; donkey races; the carnival; pony rides; Dairy Olympics; the 4-H centennial birthday celebration; animal shows; delicious fair food and much more.


One special highlight each year is the awarding of the Outstanding Older Adult Award. This year the honor was bestowed upon two worthy individuals: Roland "Pete" Thompson of Deer Park, and Sharon Ammerman of Somerset. Other nominees included Helen Stoltz-Wood of Hudson, Edmund Velaski of Baldwin, Carol Vogruba of New Richmond, and Dolores "Dolly" Donovan of Glenwood City.
