Under gray skies and threat of rain, teams of volunteers and vendors were busy Monday morning setting up the Goodhue County Fair, which opened Tuesday in Zumbrota. The once quiet grounds are now bustling with fairgoers, entertainers and a variety of livestock. Despite the damp start Monday, the National Weather Service forecasts sun and 70s for the rest of the week. (Republican Eagle photos by Michael Brun)
