The problem is that there are fewer and fewer carnivals to choose from and those that are out there are looking for the biggest fairs they can get to make as much money as they can. It's getting to the point where any fair that has an attendance of under 10,000 people for the week is going to have a hard time booking a quality carnival.

What is going to happen is that prices will continue to rise with insurance both for the fair and the carnival. It will cost more for the fair to put on events and it will cost more for the carnival to buy fuel, pay their help and provide health insurance (which they will HAVE to do if Obamacare holds up).

If all of those things happen, you will see small fairs disappear. Either three or four county fair boards will merge together to form a regional fair, or the county fairs that currently exist that are the largest fairs will become the regional fairs by default.

There really is not any other forseeable outcome, unfortunately. It is what it is.

You could let everyone one in for free, charge nothing for games or motor sports, and even give away free food! And guess what? You would still have nagging unappreciative people! Saying the food was too spicy or the truck pull lasted to long! Thank you fair board for all that you do, just remember you'll never make everybody happy. My kids made the best of the rides, loved the pull and even the horse show!

Exactly, it used to be great. And yes, it used to be full of rides and back then it was so busy you had to weave your way through the crowds. Everyone obviously loved it. If it were still like that I'd have no problem paying those prices but it is a joke. If members of the fair board or Ransdells and Wilsons and all other families that uphold it went to another event or performance that they had no connection to with similar high pricing for a way less than average, far from the best appeal.. they would be outraged. They would tell others about the experience, complain to whomever in charge and never return. Just as someone would do in a restaurant when they plan to pay a price for something that should be good and have appeal. They can color it bright colors and talk it up all they want but it's crap. The saying is "you get what you pay for." If you go you are paying 3 times what the fair these last few years is worth.
What Ransdell or Wilson are you talking about here?

I was mostly disappointed that there wasn't a drag show again this year!
