State Fair Wagon Train

Wagon Train – 1967 – this was the second year for the fair to open as the Official North Dakota State Fair … the Fair was to open at noon on Sunday that year with a parade of horse drawn wagon trains entering through the fairgrounds arches. The 1967 State Fair was out to beat the record attendance of 152,769 set the previous year. 1967 was also the second year of participation by FFA youngsters from though out the state. More than $46,000 in prizes were being offered. This was also before the days of the big name concerts performing at the fair. The big grandstand draw was the Demolition Derby on Sunday night
