Last Day of Turner County Fair



Bookmark and Share

It’s been an exciting week in Turner County as people from all over the area flocked to Parker for the annual Turner County Fair.

It was the "Best Four Days of Summer,” but Thursday night marked the end of it. It was the 132nd year for the event, making it the oldest county fair in South Dakota. Rick Lund from Sioux Falls has been coming to Parker for the fair every year since he was a kid.

“Usually, my family and I come down here every year, ride some rides, and eat some good food,” says Lund.

From corn dogs to funnel cakes, there was plenty of good food to choose from; but it wasn't the typical fair foods that had kids like Dalton Bassett from Viborg excited about this year's fair.

“I got here at two o’clock, and I’ve been waiting for chizlik all year long,” says Bassett.

And he enjoyed every bit of it. Of course, the eating came after hitting up all the exciting rides. With rides like the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Tornado, the Octopus, and the Free-Style; it's hard to say which is more enticing. But it wasn't the most thrilling rides that Brooklynn Gross from Sioux Falls was looking for.

“Today, we went on a lot of rides and my favorites were the slide and the bumper cars,” says Gross.

When asked if she was going to check out the ferris wheel before heading out, she said, “Oh no! I don’t really like heights!”

But for all of these faithful Turner County Fair-Goers; each year only gets better and better.

The fair wrapped up it’s finally night Thursday evening with fireworks at the grandstand.
