Fair Exceeds Attendence Goal
The Cntral Washington State Fair wrapped up this weekend, and the turnout was still high, despite unhealthy air quality.
This year, the fair recorded over 304,000 attendants over it's 10-day run --- with about 25% of those coming from this past weekend.
That number is up by 3,000 compared to last year.
Fair planners say they would not have passed last year's numbers if it were not for the hot weather.
"Our fair is always dependent on the weather. And obviously, we had really good weather, even with the smokey conditions that may have kept people indoors," said Rob Phillips.
Next year's fair is scheduled for September 20th through the 29th.
