The final day of the Plymouth County Fair will provide an action-packed performance in the grandstand.

Great Frontier Bull Riding Company presents the rodeo at 7 p.m.

The fair auction at 4:30 p.m. on the Pioneer Village stage includes the traditional wood carvings and benches made from wood in barns taken down after the 2011 Fair.

Jerry Gorrell of Le Mars has turned the wood into benches. The benches have been displayed in the Open Class Exhibit area during the fair.
