Commission looking into options for August event

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – The Brown County Commission voted Tuesday to postpone this year’s Brown County Fair to next year based on an unanimous recommendation from the Brown County Fair Board.

The commission also decided to look into options for having some sort of event at the fairgrounds during that time frame to replace the fair. Commission Chair Rachel Kippley said a group met to talk about what that would look like.

She said the biggest piece is figuring out the grandstand entertainment.

Kippley said plans call for some sort of modified midway to be at the new event.

She said she hopes the commission can make an announcement in the near future as to what will take place in August.
