Re: “Fair attendance? Officials won’t say, but vendors disappointed” (TNT, 9-24).

I have attended the fair for many years and so have my children, grandchildren and many of my friends. But due to the outrageous rise in costs for everything at the fair, the average person can’t afford to go anymore, especially if they have children.

It’s no wonder the game, food and ride booths say their sales and attendance are falling. This year I heard so many people complaining about the prices of everything and that this would be their last fair.

I have to agree with them. Parent should not have to pay through the nose to give their children a little fun.
