Beer garden approved for fair
Organizers of a barbecue competition at the county fair will be able to open a beer garden at the event this July
Hillsboro’s city council unanimously signed off on the condition the beer consumption be limited to a roped off section of the fairgrounds.
Brett Unruh with the county’s fair board said the board wanted to offer beer in the safest way possible.
A council member said the city’s police had no problems when similar events were organized in the past.
The competition will take place July 24.
