Fair attendance down slightly

Attendance at the 2014 Steele County Free Fair was estimated at 339,671, which reflected about 3.2 percent down from last year’s record attendance.

Jim Gleason, fair secretary/manager said, “Generally this reduced figure was experienced by everyone on the fairgrounds with exception of the midway which brought in higher numbers than last year. Weather was certainly not much of a factor. The rain came about the time the fair was closing down. We had great weather this year. Last year we had perfect weather.” Heat and humidity rolled into southernMinnesotathe latter part of fair week.”

All in all, Gleason was pleased with the fair. “Everything went very smoothly. The fair was very well attended and we had many positive comments. Thanks again to all of our volunteers who contributed to our success.”

Dates of the 2015 Steele County Free Fair are August 18-23 with the theme, “Fun, Food and Screams in 2015.”
