The Blue Earth County Fair kicked-off on Thursday, and if you hit up the fairgrounds, you will notice some significant changes.
Due to fiscal reasons there are no Midway rides this year.
But on the flip side, high-speed go-kart races start Saturday at 7 P.M.
Organizers say everyone is welcome to come to the fairgrounds and have a good time.
"It's beautiful and it's a great time, you always meet new people and you always have fun...and it's such a small-community feel out here, that no matter how many people you have out here, it's kind of like living in a small town," said Jerry Kramer, president of the Blue Earth County Fair.
The fair is up and running through Saturday night.
