Interstate Fair starts in West Salem

As Country Boom recently ended, another festival begins.

The La Crosse Interstate Fair is underway in West Salem.

Today events include animal judging, square dancing and go-kart racing.

With a blend of old and new, organizers say the fair is a great way to celebrate the area.

“It’s really exciting to see everybody come out to the fair, a lot of daycare schools, it’s really awesome, they’re so excited to see all the animals and exhibits going on,” said Helayna Nerby, 2018 ‘Fairest of the Fair’.

The fair runs through Sunday.

Admission is free and there is no cost to park.

A full schedule of events is available on the Interstate Fair’s website
