Fair Fun For All

On the opening day of the Minnesota State Fair, Guardian Angels in Elk River had some fair fun of its own.

Fair Day at Guardian Angels was held Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Guardian Angels Care Center, 400 Evans Avenue. Among the fair-themed attractions were a petting zoo, fair games, balloons, clowns, quilts and handiwork, craft displays, music, antique cars and tractors, horse and buggy rides, and even some fair food.
