Wow the crowd at the Ramsey County Fair Talent Contest


The White Bear Avenue Parade is definitely a must-go event, with the most floats, bands and marching units for miles around.

Before the surrounding area developed into the suburb of Maplewood, the Ramsey County Fair was in the middle of farm country, as seen in this 1953 aerial view.

Rides are the perennial favorite at the Ramsey County Fair, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Today’s fair lets youngsters see farm animals up close, some for the first time.

The Ramsey County Fair Amateur Talent Contest is open to anyone who is a resident of Ramsey County and is an amateur entertainer. The 2013 talent contest will be Sunday, July 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the fairgrounds. There are no auditions necessary for performers to take the stage.
Participants must register on or before Saturday, July 13, at 1 p.m. Entry categories are determined by age groups as follows: age 12 and under, age 13-18 and open class for everyone else. Prizes awarded in each category are $65 for first place, $45 for second place and $25 for third place.
