All-Star Line-Up for Great Jones County Fair in Monticello

Governor Kim Reynolds will make a visit to the area this week.

Her office says the governor will be at the Great Jones County Fair in Monticello on Thursday at 5:30 pm.

Today is the first official day of the fair with the truck and tractor pull. Fair Manager John Harms says they’ve got another top-notch line-up of entertainment this year.

Harms says Saturday night’s crowd could be the largest ever in the history of the Great Jones County Fair.

And the Great Jones County Fair will be celebrating a special anniversary during Saturday night’s concert with its fairgoers.

The fair wraps up Sunday with stock car races and the Christian concert with Toby Mac, which will feature a Monticello native as a group member.

Congratulations to this year’s new Great Jones County Fair Queen Lauren Ries of Monticello, who was crowned Tuesday night. Princess is Jaelynn Kraus of Monticello.
