Boyle County fair was nice but don't boycott the fair ! It's nice to get out and see people you haven't seen in years and your also supporting ur local town. No matter how crappy we think the rides are as adults , kids love them and the teenagers have a blast there ! Not much else for them to do in Harrodsburg !!!

The fair board should know the prices before they hire the carnies!! They need a new group on the board in my opinion..

The last few years Harrodsburg been all about getting money for nothing,restraunt tax,water tax and for summer fun a fair tax.Remember we still have to pay Eddies electric bill.You got what you voted in,the mayor well you know what he is,the commissioners about the same,but not all.And you all thought Jerry Royalty was crazy,LOL!!.Well it's real big time now.Lack of morals and honesty bring corruption.Follow the money if you can.

You could go to the bluegrass fair in Lexington if you'd rather. I don't know the price of admission but the ride bracelet alone is $18. You should learn to appreciate what you have an stop being envious of what you feel you lack.

if you think we need a new board, well then, get out from behind your computer screen and come and join! We meet the first Wednesday of every month. Be sure to bring your checkbook so you can become a share holder and then the board can vote you in. Then after you join, you can volunteer your time for the whole year. Not just fair week, but every event that goes on there we give our time to the community. When we are not giving our time, a large majority of the members are out trying to round up donation's to help pay our bills through the winter. You see, the fairgrounds is a self supporting entity. We are not owned or opperated by the City or County. What money we do recieve from them comes from the restuarant tax and we have to outline a detailed proprosal to show how we spend the money. If you think back to last year,Yes I know that is hard for some to do, WE DID OFFER ONE PRICE ADDMISSION. And guess what..... PEOPLE CONTINUED TO GRIPE!!! We live in age where you can't please everyone and we understand that, If you don't like the fair, then so be it and don't come to it.

I will not attend because it will be crap like the last few years! In my opinion everyone on the present fair board should be replaced!

$5 to see a truck pull is well worth it to me ! Also those guys and gals do a lot to make it happen ! Including furnishing equipment to tend the track and the fuel to run them ! So take it easy on the volunteers who make this happen ! Thank them when u see them ! As for the fair , yes the rides are old but like I said before ! The teenagers love it just to have a place to interact besides school ! To me it's worth it for the memories ! Lots of good ones from the mercer county fair !!!!

I don't think all the fair board needs to be replaced. Mainly Lamayne and Jay need to be replaced, they are both @ssholes and treat everyone else on the fair board like they are idiots. When in fact they are the ignorant ones. They need to get thier heads out of their @ss and learn how to put on a fair.

The fair lasts for a week. The fair gets a lot of money off of the restaurant tax you say. That sounds kind of dum. I hear that the old fort is short of money and they had to close the part of it down unless they can get a volunteer. If that tax money is for tourist why is they on the tourist bunch giving all that money to the fair and not to the fort. I expect that the fort brings a lot more tourist in a year than the fair does in one week.

If the fair is any count people will come to it and pay enough to pay for it. If they don't take in enough money they should cut back like we have to do when we don't make enough.
