While other counties have had similar programs for years, Claire Olson and Helen Parks are excited to be the first Fairests of the Door County Fair. The pair will help promote the Door County Fair through a number of different avenues as they develop youth leadership skills. A student of the agricultural education program at UW-River Falls, Olson hopes her role helps the fair continue to thrive.
A senior at Southern Door High School, Parks says going to the Door County Fair has always been one of her favorite things to do.
Olson and Parks will be announcing musical acts and handing out ribbons all fair long when it runs from August 1 to August 5 at John Miles County Park.
