Once a year, the people of a huge county come together in one place — Lake Elmo.

The Washington County Fair ran from July 29 to Aug. 2. 

In the grandstand were big shows that appeal to the masses: pickup see-saw; truck pull; ATV Big Air Tour; and the demolition derby.

Gold Star Amusements provided the carnival again, and everything from horse shows to Swinetime pig races was available to connect metro and rural residents alike.
