Chesaning, Mich-- There's still time to check out the 104th Saginaw County Fair. On Friday organizers were gearing up for the animal auction.

It's expected to bring in nearly 600 buyers. Some of the money from the sale will go to the kids tending to the animals through scholarships for college.

We met up with the crew preparing the buyer's meal that included grilled chicken and pork.

"We were out here all night preparing this meal, this is my favorite part about the fair," said Masterchef, Matt Bray.

Along with the animals there are rides, food and family fun. The fair ends at 11:00 p.m. and costs $12.
