Extra! Extra! Bunnies Multiply, Cakes Satisfy at 1960 Dakota County Fair
The county fair fun of the past wasn't all that different from what attracts fair-goers today.
Aug. 18, 1960: Before motorcross races and demolition derbies, there was good old-fashioned horse racing at the Dakota County Fair.
But some of the classics remain—bunnies and baked goods among them. These photos from the Dakota County Tribune reflect many of the same traditions as do photos taken just last year.
