The 151st annual Boulder County Fair is underway in its new virtual format, drawing people to their screens instead of the fairgrounds on Nelson Road. Fairgoers can view videos of past events including the parade and the carnival at Concerts and, yes, the monster truck show also can be viewed digitally.

“We’re still going to try and give people a great experience and do it safely as possible,” Laura Boldt, fair coordinator, said earlier this week of the switch to virtual participation in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Some events also will be livestreamed on Facebook as well as on the fair website. Here’s a rundown of what events can be seen via those platforms provided by the fair:
