The Baraga County Fair kicked off this past Friday bringing members of the Baraga County Community and beyond to the Pelkie fair grounds for the event. Fair goers were able to experience some  of the best the county has to offer in multiple categories including art, talent, farm animals, bounce house fun and more. The fair ran from Friday Aug. 6 to Sunday, Aug. 8 and was packed  with events that were fun for the whole family. The first day of the fair was full of awards and the arrival of 4- H animal exhibits. Queen candidates gathered for the awarding of the crowns and special awards for Progressive Farmer, Pioneer Farmer, Friends of the Fair and Senior Citizen of the Year were handed out as well.
