This has been an exceptional year -- great weather, great crowds, a lot of fun. 

They have made some improvements at the fair that you will notice when you come down here -- improvements in the grandstands and the rodeo grounds. 

Tonight is a big night at the fair.  Top-notch talent in the rodeo world is here, competing for big money. 

There are a couple of more days to go -- Saturday and Sunday.  It's a nice time to take a trip to Kalispell and take in the event.
