The Box Butte County Fair will host its first annual Spring Fling this Saturday, May 3.

The day will serve as not only a huge social event, but as a fundraiser for both the Box Butte County Fair and 4-H program.

Events begin at 8 am with a Tough Run. Fair Manager Jenilee Woltman says “it is only for the tough (or maybe a little crazy). Participants must be able to ‘survive’ several muddy obstables.” There will be several different age divisions. You can still register online at
