ONTARIO — The Malheur Enterprise delivered newspaper fun and games to the Malheur County Fair Friday, Aug. 2. Our team set up a booth where fairgoers could try their hand at a newspaper toss to win a prize.

The ICA Rodeo Friday evening was full of strong riders and ropers that entertained a packed arena. Whether a rider wowed or got stuck on a stubborn bronc, the crowd cheered loudly throughout the events.
