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.
