It was not anything to write about, just like the fair. Not worth going to anymore. They need to change the ride company for sure! Tired of the lame company, Gamble. They suck so bad.

that was a sorry excuse for a parade. at least when Betty Sergeant was mayor they all rode on bales of hay and threw candy. all you had was tom canterbury and charlie that seems to be Miltons royal couple that is inseperable. did they go to new york and get hitched last week with all those other gay couples? tom canterbury, charlie 4 firetrucks and 4 horses. It can't get much worse than that.

There was a few more than that. But it did suck this year. They should give the fair to another town/city/village. A place that isn't afraid to spend money to make it a good one. I doubt I will be there this year. The mudbog is a joke and so is just about everything else that goes on over there.

If you want to have an awesome time at a county fair go to Boyd County in Kentucky, Gallia County in Ohio! They are incredible compared to Cabell County. I'll never spend another dollar at that crappy fair.

How bout joining the fair board and helping out to make the fair happen instead of sitting at home waiting in your welfare check and criticizing the VOLUNTEER work of the hard WORKING people of the county? You have no idea!
And, it's not the MILTON fair, it's the cabell COUNTY fair. If the people of the county would come and help support the fair to make it happen, it could be a fabulous fair. But, no one beyond Barboursville will even join the fair board.
Don't criticize till you have worked a day in someone's shoes, how bout it?

I used to go to the fair all the time. I am not going to go back until they get rid of some of the people that runs it like Bill Kelly and MacClosky. Most of the ones on the board is power hungry and that is why they are there

I am not sittin at home waiting on a welfare check!!!! I work very hard as a mom/wife and my husband works his ass off to provide for his family. If everyone on the fair board works so hard, then why does it suck so bad????? Seems it would be better than what it is. I know that it is the Cabell County fair. That is why I suggested another city/town/village to take it over cause obviously it isn't all it could be.

If you all work so hard to make it what it is...why don't the volunteers go to the other towns and try to recruit more volunteers and board members to make it better!

The volunteers don't work that hard. That is why the fair sucks as bad as it does now. There isn't nothing they can do to bring it back to what it was. I think Barboursville would be a good place to move it to, but Bill Kelly needs to get the money back for the entertainment building he built and we don't want to ruin that for him.

I agree, the fair should be moved somewhere else as well as the parade. I shouldn't have to spend my hard earned money in other states to enjoy a county fair, but that is what we and a lot of other people have to do. I refuse to spend another dollar at that thing they call a fair. The rides should be one of your biggest attractions, and that company flat out isn't worth paying for. All you have to do is watch the news and see that every other fair in the try-state area is better than Cabell county. The bumper cars barely move, the guy that runs the ferris wheel (that ride is gone this year) had no people skills, he was always rude and bossy! And don't even get me started on the derby.

Yeah Gambill Amusements sucks but that is a product of the good ole boy system at work since Bill kelley and Don Mccroskey are big buddies with the a__holes that owns Gambill

Well I guess I can pass judgement at you like you do the VOLUNTEERs. You have no freakin idea how hard it is to put the fair together because only a handful of people are expected to do it all while others sit by and bitch about it.. The pumpkin fest wants the fair to cease to exist because then they can take possession of all the buildings that the 4h leaders and parents and kids raised money for.
There is a bunch of people with a conflict of interest If you ask me.

I wish Barboursville would take it so there wouldn't be so much conflict of interest going on with the pumpkin fest.
The bville park would make a great place for the fair and more people would volunteer and attend.

Can a person not express their opinion without the VOLUNTEERS takin it personally? It is not that good. Seriously. Barboursville or anywhere else would be better I feel. If I were doing things though I wouldn't set up just about everything that people would be going for on the same day. All the singers, the mudbog and demo derby all on the same day. Spread 'em out and they might have more people show up thru the week instead of Saturday.

The kids have put a lot of time and effort in the buildings! Just by people not showing up effects the hard work of the kids! We need to come together for them!!!!! I grew up doing the fair! I love the fact my kids are now able to! I do agree it was crappy ! But when venders are told not to show up its a waste of money what do you expect! But show the kids you care!!!!! Show up ! For them!!!! Better yet bid on some animals ! All they need for support is more buyers! Hey that's how I payed for my school clothes! My kids are saving for collage! If no one shows intrest in it then why waste money on entertainment! Show your support for our kids!
