What about the parade?,this move will only kill the fair!!,It's all about money.Look at the Anoka fair they can manage to park cars on what they have.people who go to fair a couple times will probably go only once.Than of course they'll have to raise the gate fee to pay for the new buildings that will turn people off.This move is down right stupid.

Im sort of on the fence about this. I like the fact that the fair itself is moving but I really hate to see the parade go as well. The parade passes right in front of my home on Lake Orono and we always make a fun family/friend gathering out of it. As far as the fair, it will be nice to see less traffic and hear fewer demo derbys/tractor pulls at night.

I love this new idea. Besides the old fair grounds could be a great place for a city ZOO to get started. Thats what this area has needed for a long time, a zoo thats not way down in the twin cities!
