Bygone Bylines: Bunnies, 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 motocross races and demolition derbies, there was good old-fashioned horse racing at the Dakota County Fair in 1960, as you'll see in a photo published in a 1960 edition of the Dakota County Tribune.

But some of the classics remain—bunnies and baked goods among them, as you'll see in our other photo snagged from that historical newspaper issue.

Check out more events, exhibits and archives at the Dakota County Historical Society, 130 Third Ave. N., South St. Paul.
