This year the Saginaw County Fair welcomes Buckeye Donkey Ball for the hilarious fun of donkey races on Tuesday August 1st. For over 70 years Buckeye Donkey Ball has been providing donkey races across America for your entertainment. Donkey races are an action packed hour of family fun. Participants must ride real, live, donkeys from start to finish. Some donkeys are cooperative and some are uncooperative, and that’s where the fun begins.
