Attendance Jumps At State Fair
By Rick Howlett
Louisville, KY – Fair Board President Harold Workman says officials were optimistic that attendance
would pick up this year, given the fact that more people were choosing to spend their
entertainment dollars closer to home amid the recession.
(just because we had kept up with the county fairs across the state and other
festivals and those attendance had been up through the summer, so we thought
that'd carry into the state fair, and it certainly did).
Workman says mild weather and a strong entertainment lineup also helped bring
in more people.
