Alfy’s “world of Robotic Puppets”®
All Four Days
These fun-filled life size puppets will be roaming the grounds of
the Blue Earth County Fair, charming everyone from two to a hundred and two.
Different puppet characters will be making their joyous appearance
to unsuspecting visitors to the fair. Through the “magic” of radio control,
these life-like puppets will be visiting and sharing jokes
and quips with unsuspecting fair goers.
Dock Dogs® Jumping
We are the Minnesota Affiliate Club of Worldwide DockDogs® Inc.
We welcome you to this fun sport that we all enjoy and love so much!
People “get involved” in dock jumping for many reasons, first and foremost
as a way to have fun with their best friend. Others like the competitiveness of the sport,
while others are enjoying the friends they are making across the country as they travel.
DockDogs has three exciting disciplines:
Big Air—Each Dog/Handler Team is measured for distance
by 2 DockDogs® Certified Judges (Regional/Club events)
who “eye-ball” where the dog’s hind quarter breaks the water’s surface.
Extreme Vertical—Dogs jump and grab for an extended bumper
hanging 8ft out over the water starting at 4’6” high. The bumper continues
to rise 2 inches until there is one clear winner.
Speed Retrieve—A fast paced timed racing game. Dogs run, jump and
swim to retrieve a bumper at the end of the pool.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Anyone is welcome to bring their dog that is 6 months or older
to try dock dogs on Saturday, July 28th from 10-12pm!
