MARNE, Mich. (WZZM) -- One of West Michigan's oldest fairs is underway in eastern Ottawa County.
The Berlin Fair began Monday at the Berlin Fairgrounds in Marne.
Events and attractions this week include the "Ulitmate Air Dogs," bingo, animal shows music and line dancing. The fair also features carnival rides, a beer tent and karaoke.
The fair has been taking place since 1855. Marne was originally known as Berlin -- hence the name of the Berlin Fair. While World War I prompted the name change of the town, the secretary of the fair decreed "it is still the Berlin Fair, and it always will be."
You can learn more about the fair on its official website.
WZZM 13 is an official sponsor of the Berlin Fair.
