Benton County’s Got Talent – Benton County Fair Sends Three To State Fair [VIDEO]


The Benton County Fair has now drawn to a close. We’ve all had our fill of corn dogs, cotton candy and rides for a year and many of us are already looking forward to the Minnesota State Fair.

There are six people that are getting REALLY excited for the Great Minnesota Get Together in just a couple of weeks – the winners of the Benton County Fair Talent Show.

This year we saw incredible talent on the Cottonwood Stage in Sauk Rapids. A hip-hop dance group, a belly dancing troop, lots of singers and even a tap dancer! The preliminary rounds on Thursday and Friday night provided ten acts for Saturday night’s finale.

Three age groups performed their routines in hopes of winning a cash prize and being able to go on to compete at the state fair and represent Benton County. Each group’s winner moves on to the state level and will hopefully make Benton County proud!

Abby, our 98 Country videographer, joined us on Saturday night for the finals. Here’s a little taste of what you missed. Congratulations to all our winners moving on to state and good luck at the MN State Fair in just a couple of weeks!
