The county fair fun ends with cowboys, trucks and tractors

With monster sports and motocross, bull riding, mutton bustin’ and tractor pull – not to mention demolition derby collisions – last week’s Anoka County Fair grandstand events thrilled crowds every night of the week.

Supercross motocross kicked off the events Tuesday night, followed by mutton bustin’ for the littlest riders and Great Frontier bull riding for rough riding cowboys on Wednesday evening.

Thursday and Friday had NTPA Regional National showdown truck and tractor pull – Minnesota’s largest pull. Midwest Monster Motorsports growled into the grandstand Saturday afternoon.

Sunday afternoon’s demolition derby brought a crashing end to the annual festivities during the annual Anoka County Fair grandstand extravaganza.
