Googling "high class fair company"..... Huh. I'm not getting any matches. What the hell?

We prob won't go this year. Last year it was awful. The food made one of my kids and my husband sick for two days. The rides were shoddy, at best. And the carnies looked like the worst of the meth rats had been dragged in to work (if you could call that work). We went to the Oskie fair this last weekend. It had been years since I went to that, but it was a pleasant surprise. The food was good. The live band was pretty good. The rides didn't make those of us who rode them feel like they were sitting in a death trap. And the carnies had all of their teeth! Douglas Co. needs to get rid of it's current fair company and get someone else a little higher class in there.

Seeing all of Lawrence's "white trash" in one place.

What a great place for a probation officer to make contacts.

Boeing - they did a few years ago when Chely Wright came to perform. It was great .. I don't know why they don't continue that .. I worked the ticketbooth for that event and there were lots of people!

I think the fair could be put to much better use and allow to bring in more dollars from surrounding counties. Perhaps a good music act or something eye catching like may cost more but you'll get more back.
