"Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show: It’s fur-flying family fun at the fair! Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show is The North Woods’ newest and cutest attraction featuring talented rescue dogs. These former pound puppies prove they’re no longer “underdogs,” as they conquer big-air stunts, catch Frisbees mid-air, race through weave poles, compete in a one-of-a-kind triathlon, and showcase their incredible high-jumping skills. Free with fair admission. Located in The North Woods. Shows at 11 a.m., 2 and 4:30 p.m. daily," the Minnesota State Fair said.
