The HoCo Fair Heats Up

Ah the sweet perfume of the livestock barns returns through Aug. 15. You can find the HoCo Fair schedule here.

One new event, according to the Sun, is an old standby...the tug of war:

Participants in the first round on Wednesday will be members of the public safety professions, from police officers to firefighters to sheriff's deputies. On Thursday, regular folks are encouraged to take part.

And yes, there will be an oversized muddy ditch to motivate everyone to pull with all the brute strength they can muster. Teams are limited to 16 members and can't exceed a total of 1,800 pounds.
