Strolling all the exhibits at the State Fair is no quick job! One of the favorite outdoor exhibits are the homes, Exhibits Coordinator Tracy Pelzer said, and this year brings three different companies constructing homes for display in the center of the Fairgrounds. Another fun addition housing this year includes a yurt that the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department is constructing on the grounds to show off the newest twist in camping comfort. The yurt is a cabin that state parks are adding for outdoor enthusiasts. There are only two yurts in the State right now. Once the Fair is complete the yurt will be moved to Lake Metigoshe.
A delightful addition to that same area is a big display from Rainbow Play Systems. They will bring a sturdy and colorful collection of play equipment for youngsters. Seven sets will be displayed, with two of them available for young Fairgoers to try out. Slightly older visitors may be more intrigued by the outdoor kitchen equipment and furniture near the homes or by a collection of portable garage and storage units.
