Funnel cakes, Ferris wheels, and four-legged friends…
It’s that time of year again for the kick off of many county fairs in Michigan.
Today marks the start of the 164th Ingham County Fair.
The fun kicks off today in Mason at the Ingham County Fairgrounds.
Organizers say as a new attraction this year, visitors will have the chance to take a ride in a monster truck.
Throughout the week there will also be barrel racing, a demolition derby, and a variety of 4-H shows for guests to enjoy.
While fairs can be fun, health officials want you to remember when getting up close and personal with animals, they can sometimes carry germs that can make you sick.
Some tips to remember when petting animals include:
Rides start for the Ingham Co. Fair Monday at 4:00 p.m.
Tickets are $6 for adults.
Seniors 65+ and kids ages 3-12 are $5 at the gate.
