Rice County Fair Vertigo Ride is fun
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines vertigo as: “A sensation of movement in which the individual or his environment appears to be whirling dizzily. or “A dizzying and confused state of mind.”
KDHL Radio’s Jerry Groskreutz and Paul Shea, Rice County Fair Board Chair Tara Langevin and her daughter, Fair Ambassadors Avalon Roberts and Marisa Winget, all got on the swings at the Vertigo Armory. When they finished, everyone said they enjoyed the ride.
Rice County Fair Executive Secretary John Dvorak was most concerned about Groskreutz, so he brought him a large “Lose Your Lunch Bag”.
When Jerry finished the ride he said. “It wasn’t bad at all. I really didn’t feel dizzy.”
He showed that the special bag was empty when he was done. Some wondered if he had missed the bag.
Paul Shea enjoyed the ride, “It was fun and the view of the fairground up there is amazing.”
Rice County Fair Ambassadors Marisa Winget and Avalon Roberts also said “the view was awesome” and both said they “would definitely leave with friends.”
Tara Langevin was a little suspicious at first, but also said it was “really fun” and that she would do it again.
Everyone said they thought it would run faster. A video is available on the KDHL Facebook page.
The Rice County Fair has traditionally been held Tuesday through Sunday, but has been moved Wednesday through Sunday this year.
Jerry Groskreutz looks forward to hosting the fair’s “Best of the Best Agriculture Awards” on Wednesday as part of an expanded program from KDHL AM Minnesota.
The show starts at 9:30 am. If you miss all or part of the program, the program will be available as a podcast on the KDHL website or on the FREE KDHL app.
Minnesota Department of Agriculture commissioner Thom Petersen is expected to attend.
Every day until Friday we will have a “Fair Lunch” during our “Noon Report” from noon to 1:00 pm.
We also have a “Fairground Story” segment from Wednesday to Friday afternoon.
I took a few more photos around the fairgrounds on Tuesday. There was activity in most of the buildings.
