Wednesday marked the opening day at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair and many activities kicked off in Chippewa Falls for families to enjoy.
Of course, there are the traditional food stands, rides and carnival games, but this is also a time of competition where people around Chippewa County enter everything from goats, to cookies to beer to be judged.
There are many entertainment and educational opportunities as well.
The Northern Wisconsin State Fair runs through July 14. For more information on the fair click here.
