A new midway and a bigger rodeo are on tap for the 129th annual Del Norte County Fair that runs next week from Thursday through Sunday.

Plenty of other changes are in store, but old reliables such as the destruction derby will be back, and ticket prices are staying the same, said Randy Hatfield, fairgrounds chief executive officer.

“The biggest change is going to be the Paul Maurer Carnival we’ll have this year,” Hatfield said. “I’m really excited about the show this year, they have a lot of new rides. This is the first time in 12 years that we’ve had a new carnival.”

“One of the new rides is they’re going to have a ‘drop,’” said Hatfield.  “A lot of people get into this tower — and it just drops.”

Miss Del Norte Pageant contestants

The Miss Del Norte Pageant will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the arena grandstands during the opening day of the county fair.

The contestants include:
