Members of the Hillsboro Business Association on Wednesday agreed to fork out $3,750 to purchase a large canvas tent for the Hillsboro Days celebration in June.

The cost will be split with the Norman County (Minn.) Fair Board, although the price will balloon $3,000 to $5,000 once HBA purchases poles and sidewalls for the tent.

HBA members Randy Habeck of Hillsboro Drug and Jim Birkemeyer of R&J Broadcasting updated the business association on their tent hunt Wednesday.

Birkemeyer said the used 40-by-100-foot tent being purchased by HBA will come to Hillsboro from Jim Gompf, owner of Gompf Displays in Fargo.
