Central Washington Fair Boasts Highest Attendance Numbers in 5 Years

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA. -- It was a great year for the Central Washington State Fair in Yakima. The fair grounds are getting cleaned up Monday as fair attractions pack up and move on to their next location. 


This year's fair attendance rose 15% compared to last year. Organizers tell us they are very happy with how everything went during the 10-day event.


"Fantastic," Greg Stewart, President of Central Washington State Fair said. "It was one of the best fairs ever. We couldn't have asked for better weather except for maybe a couple days. The tenants and the attitude of our fair visitors was positive. Everybody had a great time."


The attendance reached over 315,000 for the first time in the last five years. Fair officials plan to move the fair back one week for 2015.
