CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Sunday is the fifth and final day of the Jackson County Fair. Helen Funk, the Expo director, says this year had the biggest turnout yet.
This year fair-goers experienced more moderate weather than last year.
"The highest temperature so far has been 90 degrees and today might get up to 91," said Funk.
Funk says that last year, temperatures were in the 100s and there was a thunderstorm on the last day, delaying the opening of the fair.
This year also brought some different attractions.
"Totally new carnival rides, we've got rattlesnakes in the event center and he's been doing all week as well as Peter with the butterfly exhibits," said Funk.
If you saw something at the fair last year but not this year, Funk says that the attractions tend to rotate so that the fair can be new every single year.
Anna Minter and her company Anna's Party Works is one of the attractions guests can plan on seeing every year. Minter has been entertaining kids at the fair for 25 years.
"I am local and I do children's entertainment. I'm at the libraries, but to come here and see my community come together in such a joyous occasion makes me happy and makes all the families happy as well," said Minter.
Next year, the Jackson County Fair will be pushed back further into the summer by one week.
