The annual Sioux Empire Fair is always an exciting time of the year for kids and adults alike. There are endless carnival rides and a delicious assortment of fair foods to enjoy. There can also be some fun, unexpecting surprises along the way.

On Saturday, the second day of the fair, the Sioux Empire Fair staff made the joyful announcement that one of the cows inside the Pipestone Discovery Barn was about to become a mom.

The Sioux Empire Fair‘s faithful staff did a great job keeping fair attendees updated on its Facebook page regarding the status of the new calf’s highly anticipated arrival. Not too long after the first announcement, the calf was born Saturday afternoon just after 2:15 PM.

The calf is a precious, brand new baby girl. She was definitely bright-eyed and eagerly looking around the Pipestone Discovery Barn.

This little girl was not the only new face around the Pipestone Discovery Barn at the Sioux Empire Fair. Baby piglets made their grand debut in the world on Sunday morning. You never really know what you're going to see at the 83rd annual Sioux Empire Fair!
