While official numbers are not in yet, fair organizers say this year’s fair is bringing in the crowds. Fair manager Faith Robertson and fair board member Gene Meier say attendance is better than it’s been for years.
“I’ve heard so many positive comments about this fair,” Meier said. “The community has really come together, and it shows in the numbers.”
On Friday morning, Meier was already citing near-record attendance.
“We just had one of the best opening days we’ve had for years, or at least that’s what our vendors are telling me,” Meier said.
