The forecast was for rain Saturday and if you have lived in Berlin for any amount of time you know it's very rare for a Berlin Fair to escape three days without any rain.
Saturday, however, only saw a few drops of rain and some strong winds as well as dropping temperatures as the Fair attendance remained brisk. The sweatshirt and jacket concessions looked busy as the colder temperatures came in around dinnertime.
While many braced for possible rain the hot topic at the Fair Saturday was still a scary incident that happened in the bullring on Friday. A woman playing in a game called "The Ring of Fire" was knocked over and briefly unconscious by a charging bull. The bull knocked down several players on the first run and then came back and bucked a young man high in the air and the woman hard to the ground.
She was treated at the scene by Berlin EMS and driven by ambulance to Hubbard School where Life Star picked her up and took her to Hartford Hospital. Her injuries were not life threatening.
"What did they think would happen when they let the bull loose," said a young man to his friend. "I mean are you kidding me."
Others asked Berlin Lions members why they would have this kind of entertainment but it seems like this was a new twist and game put on by the Xtreme Bull Riders. Bull Riding continued Saturday in the ring but "The Ring of Fire" has been shut down for the remainder of the Fair.
Country music rising star Craig Campbell entertained a large crowd while country legend Diamond Rio will play at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
