Weather Forecast

Amusement Attractions owners William and Lisa Purdy drive through a large puddle at the Becker County Fairgrounds Tuesday morning, looking for a dry spot to place the Star Trooper ride. Much of the south end of the midway was covered with puddles following Tuesday morning's heavy rains, but by Tuesday evening the area was dry again.
