All I can say is you could not go anywhere anytime and see better pulling and a better show than the 2 nights of motorsports so far this week for $10 per night.

All I have to say is that if you don't like the fair, take your family on another outing to do something.. you may have to travel further, eat at a restaurant, fill up the tank and pay to get in but it should be well worth it considering you won't be in Mercer Co.. Just my 2 cents worth but things could be a lot worse...

I am gonna eat my words from b4 ! My daughter and her friends said they absolutely hated the fair ! I thought they would just like to hang out but they said the workers were rude , not helpful at all and there was some clown walking around making racial comments ! I loved the horse show and the motorsports ! The truck pull was amazing ! Demo Derby was awesome !
I know the fair board works hard but please try to get the same group that does Boyle . It honestly is an insult to the mercer county fair !

You are 100% right! Everything deserved an A+ except the carnival and will give them a F -. Not bashing the Fair Board we appreciate your alls hard work, just please get a nice Carnival for next year with more rides.

I agree with the comments about the carnival. Due to circumstances out of our control, the carnival was what it was. 2 out of the three last years the carnival that we originally contracted with up and quit on us around march or may of those years. Thus, leaving us with little time to find a quality carnival that would entertain the community. We basically had to take what we could find, because all quality carnivals are already booked for the year. I can guarantee that we will have an exciting carnival on the midway next year that will make everyone happy. The rides are an important expierience to everyone's overall happiness and we as a board know this. I hope the other events that took place on the grounds at least somewhat made up for the poor carnival. Thank you.

If this is a actual board member. Kudos to you for your honesty. Suggestion.. lets center the rides and the kids first rather than horse shows and motorsports. Seems to much energy into motorsports. Do It for the kids!!!!!!! Or you will agsin lose money as this event goes under each yr

I had heard 3 days ago that it was a flop . Don't mean to sound like a broke record but the fair upon a time was just great . lots of rides , snaks to eat etc . And it would be a lot of folks there from 2 to 82. That's what the kids look forward to & big kids too . I didn't go but didn't hardly see any lights from the fair at night . Use to be lit up real nice . We went to LJS & wasn't hardly any cars parked there like it use to.be .
