AUSTIN, MN — Those attending the Mower County Fair will notice something different.
Leaders gathered today to unveil the brand new Mower County Fair grandstand.
The new 1,500 seat structure takes the place of the old structure that was deemed unsafe.
Fair leaders are excited to have the structure done, especially in a short amount of time.
“In a short time frame to get the new facility up and on time and ready for the fair,” Fair Board President Neal Anderson said. “Trust me. The whole fair board for a long time was wondering whether or not we were going to be ready for today and whenever we are, it’s a real relief.”
Anderson adds besides the fair, they hope to attract different types of entertainment to the new grandstand throughout the year.
