A big congrats to the people at our Fair. They should be proud of the positive reputation they continue to bring to our community. Way to go!

I love the fair and it's great that attendance increases every year. With increasing attendance, I would like to see two concert performances nightly brought back. I went to see "America". With only one performance scheduled, it was standing room only. Also, I recommend there be more than one wine concession booth going in the wine garden. I stood in line for 20 minutes for a glass of wine.
