Why did they stop having graduation at the fair grounds? That was always a great venue for it.

When the decision was made to stop holding the ceremonies at the fairgrounds, I believe the reason given was that it was to save costs. Renting the fairground was very expensive.

Thanks Jtjh. That makes sense. The fairgrounds are a busier place than they were 30 years ago.
