Fair Staff Pleased With 2017 Attendance
The 120th Salmon Arm Fair just ended a few days ago, but we already have attendance figures.
Fair Chair Star McGregor says that 2017's numbers were down just a bit from last year "We were down very, very slightly. We had 11,535 paying people come through the gate."
McGregor says that's down just 77 people from a year ago.
She says that given the wet weather that took over a part of the weekend, it's not so bad "We're very, very pleased with it. We're crowing."
She says that all their volunteers are to be thanked for their work, and notes that she'd like to thank the Fair's front office staff for all their extra efforts.
