A large canvas tent may become a downtown fixture of the Hillsboro Days celebration.

Members of the Hillsboro Business Association agreed Wednesday to spend up to $12,000 to cover half the cost to purchase a tent for the city’s annual summer celebration.

The expenditure was contingent on the Norman County (Minn.) Fair Board agreeing to share the tent and chip in toward its purchase.

HBA President Randy Habeck advocated for the purchase, pointing out the rental of a similar tent earlier this summer allowed the Hillsboro Days street dance to be held regardless of rain.
