|It was raining the day we visited the Houghton County Fair. For a
while it was touch and go as to whether or not the amusement rides along
the Midway would be opened. Around 1:00pm it was determined to that the
rides would go on.
From time to time there were brief periods when going on a ride was for
the hardiest of fair goers only.
That of course were the kids. While adults huddled under tents and went
indoors to view the exhibits, the kids took to the midway. Clad in
their hoodies, they were not to be denied.
The midway is madeup of amusements and gaming produced by Schmidt
Amusements. They put on a great show. In Houghton the fairgrounds are
large, very large. Rides for the little kids are segregated from those for
teens and adults. Quite a nice feature. It works great for all but
reporters and photographers with an aversion to a lot of walking.
