Events new and old at this weekend’s rodeo and state fair — |Schedule at Bottom of Story

This is Labor Day weekend, which means it’s time for the Kodiak State Fair and Rodeo at the fairgrounds in Bells Flats.

Activities this year include a number of old favorites as well as new events.

Gates open at noon on Saturday with events as diverse as pony rides for the kid, a fashion show of antique clothes, a rocket building class, and a bee hive demonstration.

Sunday they’ll launch those rockets built on Saturday, as well as make root beer and have a wool spinning demonstration. Gates open at 11 a.m. for Cowboy Church, with regular activities beginning at noon.
