Despite rain, fairgoers flock to Wausau


Afternoon rain didn't stop people from heading to the Wisconsin Valley Fair on Saturday.

Organizers say it seems like rain clouds hover over the fair at least one day each year, and they won't know attendance numbers for a while.

The rides were still spinning and fair food favorites were being served up as raindrops fell. Farmers working in the beef and livestock barns were happy to see the sky open up, at least for a few hours.

They told Newsline 9 the rain is much needed right now.

Another attraction drawing fairgoers on a rainy afternoon, a newborn calf in the dairy barn. He was born Friday night and still learning to walk Saturday.

The fair will end Sunday night with a demolition derby show.
