The pagent was great but it's lasting way to long. 1030pm man the fair committee is doing anything to keep the crowd their. The only down fall is no one is spending money when they are up their so late. In previous years like 10 years ago the pagent was over by 930 do to a great MC that did the event. The individual last night drug the event on way to long.

I agree, the emcee did drag out the competition. He also pointed out the flaws of the girls while they were competing...including making fun of one girl for what she listed as a hobby. He was definitely not a class act, and they should get somebody new next year.

outsider's viewpoint...

very slow moving, boring....not entertaining at was not professional...wondering what criteria was used to pick the top five...obvious from the crowd that the winner chosen was very unexpected...crowd did not seem town friendly

To bad Dennis Hughes isn't the MC anymore.....He did an awesome job when he did it.....He also brought some great acts from Nashville to the fair....Good entertainment is what brings the crowds to the fairs....So think about that for next year.....Franklin County Fair needs to do something also or it will be a thing of the past..They haven't had any good entertainment either since Mr. Hughes left the area.....Wake up before it's to late......

The MC was horrible!!!!! He acted like the show was about him. His negative comments, inappropriate behavior and flippant attitude really took the focus away from these beautiful and accomplished young ladies. It was their night to shine and compete with each other, not him.... As a former Shippensburg Fair Queen, I can attest that the experience was a highlight in my life. Thank goodness this bozo was not there the night I was crowned. Fair Committee, please DO NOT have him back next year.

I don't think the fair committee cares anymore. Ever since alot of the old timers left this fair has been ran by one individual and his family. He ran alot of deidcated individuals away from the fair that helped bring great entertainment along with having a great fair queen contest.

I was their monday night and wasn't impressed at all. It's time to bring the Dillners and Thomas families back and get ride of the corporate that is running the show now.

Anyone down at the craft fair today. Maybe 15 vendors. Yes the weather was bad but they used to fill 7-10 tents full of craft vendors. Seems like this fair is headed down the same route that Franklin County fair is going.
