Remember your bug spray and sunscreen, and drink plenty of water because the Upper Missouri Valley Fair is an all-day family fun affair!! One final reminder: most folks helping with set up, parking, and ticket sales are volunteers, as is the UMVF Board. It takes a lot of heart, blood, sweat, and tears to make an event of this size happen. Take a moment to thank a board member if you can!
