2009 Wisconsin Valley Fair Off to a Great Start

So far it's been a beautiful start to the Wisconsin Valley Fair.

For me this - this is better than Christmas! I just can't get enough of the fair. It's one of the longest weeks for me at work, but I can't imagine being anywhere else.

On Tuesday we kicked things off with a live noon broadcast, talking with two of the most beautiful girls you'll find on the grounds - the Wisconsin Valley Fairest of Fair, Katie Wirkus and the 2009 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs, Melissa Ploeckelman. If you have a chance to talk with either of them, you'll find they are such a joy. You should be proud to know that these two smart young women are representing Marathon County.

On Wednesday, my videographer - Randy - and I were all geared up to be out at the fair bright and early, but unfortunately we had live truck issues. We were both so disappointed that we couldn't bring the fair to you. : ( (Technology is great, but when it doesn't work it sure makes life difficult.) But thankfully we got everything fixed and were able to be out at the fair live again during the noon show. For one of our live hits we borrowed a lamb from Chelsea Schulz (thank you very much by the way) named Doug. At the end of our main weather segment, Doug decided to taste test Chad and was nibbling on his press pass. It made for pretty good t.v.

Don't forget, you can relive some of our favorite moments at the Wisconsin Valley Fair and even exclusive web video at our webchannel www.wsaw.com.

Be sure to find some time to get out and support our youth! The county fairs are a great chance to see the all the kids and volunteers who are making a positive difference! I'll see you at the fair! : )
