Ottawa County Fair featured another new event this year.  

The Tug A Truck competition brought in a great crowd Thursday night.  

Trucks from different weight classes tried to pull their competitor across the line as if in a tug-of- war.  Not only were there trucks made for this type of competition, there were also grudge matches at the end for those who wanted to use their street vehicles to compete against a friend or another competitor. 

Some of the vehicles involved in the grudge matches were a 2013 Ford pickup and what seemed like  a comedy pull of a golf cart and an Arctic Cat.  The crowd also showed interest in a 50/50 drawing for a chance to win driving the 50th anniversary car in the demolition derby. Driver of the anniversary car will receive an additional cash prize if it wins the demolition derby.
