The Grand Forks Fall Fair was cancelled this spring when there weren't enough volunteers to come forward and organize it. However, the River Valley Community Church stepped up and helped the existing volunteers pull the event together.
New additions from last year were lawnmower races, a petting zoo and zucchini races.
The fair started Friday, Aug. 22 in the afternoon and went until Sunday afternoon. Live music, Nathan Vogel the magician and Uncle Chris the Clown were there for entertainment as were many contests.
