I love the fairgrounds; crowds and all! It wouldnt be the same without that!

Granted yes crowds can sometimes get aggravating, but there's nothing like a big group of people watching kids on rides, or shows to astound you, or animals, or just to sample... read more

The gaming and events offer a full day of activities. It would have been nice if they had a band, which would have extended my stay.

Granted yes crowds can sometimes get aggravating, but there's nothing like a big group of people watching kids on rides, or shows to astound you, or animals, or just to sample some kind of carnival food you've never tried. We went to the fair on August 15th, 2014, & it was our youngest's 1st time & we passed thru the... More

Went for the first time this year. The lighting was impressive. But let me tell ya...the traffic was horrendous!!! We entered from S. Park Ave., we were in line, on the street, for 2 and a half hours waiting to get in. NO LIE. Watched a dvd with grandkids to amuse ourselves, but a lot of cars left before getting... More

I liked every thing about the casino. But I missed the weekend bands also I wish I could win a few more times at the casino and you had more free plays more often.

Wife drags me here every year. It's actually pretty good. It's surprisingly busy and difficult to get a parking space who would've guessed? Cost 10 bucks to get in The vendors here are pretty nice.

What could be better than walking free and people watching. It's all there at the Fair. Maple ice cream cones, birch beer pop, all kinds of pizza and chicken. Plus the new and improved gadgets of every kind. Worth the price to get in.

I enjoyed the fair - the 4-H animals would have to be the highlight of the fair of course and the fact that some of the farmers were actually available to chat about the different animals and that there were so many baby animals there was wonderful. The amusement rides were fun and it was nice that there were some... More
