    I thought last year’s fair turn-out was fantastic? Or at least that’s what you hear them say every single year? So tell us… if it was so fantastic and profitable, then WHY are they lowering prices? Wasn’t there a story not too long ago about how much DEBT the fair/expo is in?

    I drive by the expo every day. I saw just how “fantastic” the 2013 fair turned out. It was a JOKE.
    I didn’t see nearly as many cars and people as you’d expect at a fair. Even on the weekends.
    They are lowering prices because people are fed-up with the high prices.
    I’m guessing the average family would have to drop at least $200 for a night at the fair.
    Don’t get me wrong… I love the fair just as much as anyone else and don’t mind spending a little extra for once-per-year fair goodies (like the food…yum!)…. but the prices kept going up and up to a point that my family just couldn’t go.
    Then let’s not forget that someone up the JC-fair food chain decided that in addition to the parking fees and fair admission, it would be a great idea to charge EXTRA for the entertainment. What pure genius this was (NOT). How’d that work out for you? Oh that’s right… you lowered prices.

    Hmmmmm? Maybe… just maybe that’s part of the reasons why the parking lots were empty?

    My family has’t gone to the fair in YEARS… and this year will be no different.
    As usual… the entertainment line-up is pathetic. They are either semi-retired entertainers, or someone you’ve never heard of this side of the continent. On rare occasions they’d bring in good NON-COUNTRY entertainment.

    PUT A FORK IN THE JC FAIR! They are well done IMO!

    Oh and quote from article: “Children and seniors over the age of 74 are free”.
    Uhmm… 74 yo children? Maybe this is figured from Obama’s common-core math since he considers your 26 yo son or daughter a “child”… ROFL !

    The last time I went to the fair was about 10 years ago, and it cost me over a hundred dollars for myself, a friend, and her two kids to get in, share some curly fries and 2 soft drinks, and take her little ones on one turn each on the baby rides. I am glad to see them reduce the price, but the only interest I ever had in the fair was the music attraction, and I am darn sure not going to pay the extra money to see someone I have never heard of. Where do they dig these people up from? And who’s brilliant idea was it to make the music cost extra? With the sketchy employment picture in the rogue valley, you would think the managers at the fair would get a clue that most of us are doing good to keep up with our house payment. Any extra money we have to spend is very minimal and well thought out. We just don’t have money to spend freely like we used to. I doubt I will ever go to another fair. It just costs too much and nothing for us to do now that the music attraction is extra money, and not someone we have ever heard of.
