What, if anything, does our city (and community) get out of these events at the Fairgounds other than increased traffic and use of our public safety resources?

drive through the hotel parking lots for the week leading up to a goodguys show. the goodguys shows generate a lot of money for pleasanton, from hotel tax to restaurant tax.

Just curious, or just clueless? Honestly, you don't see the benefit of an event at the Fairgrounds that draws over 70,000 people? In addition to the major sources of income that $$$$$ cited, there's tax from sales at the fairgrounds, permits for just about everything involving sales, food concession and supply profits, income for part time workers, etc, etc.
Let me guess, you live downtown and drive a Prius and don't know the difference between carburetor and a camshaft.......
