As an adult the fair pretty much always sucks. But this year was the absolute worst. The gate price is more than ever, the ride passes are more than ever, there are less little kid rides than I've ever seen, and there are fewer big kids rides than ever. The dollar games now cost 5 bucks, and of course the food is ridiculous. I spent 140$$$ there yesterday and still came home empty handed. Not to mention that they shut all the rides down from 5 until 6. Yes all at once. I understand people deserve a supper break but they used to have a floating operator that would relieve the other operators so they wouldn't have to shut the rides down. I know my family isn't going back this year and the way it pissed me off this year probably won't go back next year either. But the lions were cool.

The fair is a great place to catch drug pushers. Nabbed 2 yesterday. Just keep your eyes and ears open and if you see anything suspicious, take notes and talk to a deputy.

On another point, imagine what the people of Hardin County could do if they skipped the fair and donated all that money to a noble cause to benefit the county. We could do something GREAT!

Spent $140.00 and came home empty handed? What did you expect to come home with? Prices are up, I won't disagree with that. But other than going to the fair and seeing what is actually there other than games and what's on the midway then I would suspect that you could feel that you were cheated out of something. There is so much more to the county fair than rides, cotton candy, and the usual eateries. Take a stroll through the 4-H building and look at the projects that are displayed there. The artwork, photography, woodworking, etc. There are the animal projects that these young people put countless hours into for a simple ribbon for most of them. It's a place to renew friendships, and maybe meet and make some new ones as well. I hope that maybe by reading this you will realize that there is more to our fair than taking home a stuffed animal from the midway.

I agree..get yourself off of the midway and see what the fair is really about!! A lot of kids work hard and have great projects... go check out the show arena and watch a few shows down there.. Bosco..i agree but with the popcorn festival going on with big names I think they are afraid of losing their hiney's..or a rainstorm....

The 4H group dodged a bullet this year, politically, which could have forced it to disband. I was glad to get the chance to see their displays as well as the other commercial entities. Walking into the honey display actually reminded me of my own childhood, as my first step-father was a bee keeper. This is our daughter's first fair and I'm proud to be going again this afternoon, storm or no storm.

As it turned out, Sarah got all paranoid over the rain and took off on her retreat for the weekend, so I walked. The only thought I had about the rain other than keeping my daughter dry was how much cleaner it was than taking a shower in city water.

Actually as a parent I seen MORE rides for the little ones than ever before. We took our young son out earlier in the week, and he had an absolute blast. He rode rides, seen every animal that was able to be seen, watched the puppet and tiger shows, and he also went with us to look in all the buildings. We didn't even spend $50.00 and had a lot of fun.

Our children had such a good time they were falling asleep on the way home.

I think the HARDIN COUNTY FAIR is one of the best around..There is one thing that i would like to see them change is the tickets for the grandstand shows..I was there last night and they had people standing in line at 3:30 wanting tickets for the derby and a lot of them was older people i think they should have pre sales on all grandstand shows so people can get them and not have to stand in line for 3 hrs to get tickets..They can walk around the fair and enjoy their selfs then when the grandstands open they can just walk in sense they already have a ticket for that show..
