There will be several changes for the folks attending the Oconto County Fair this year which opens this weekend with horse, dog, cat and small animal shows. The most significant changes relate to the midway and band performances that are taking place on Friday and Saturday. When it comes to the midway, there are no carnival rides this year. Last year’s carnival company asked to be released from its contract. To replace those activities they’ve hired a Michigan company that offers bounce houses, wall climbing, bubble soccer and many other fun games. Those will begin at 11 am Friday throughSunday.
