Here is the number of people who attended the Puyallup Fair Sunday, as compared to the same day of the fair last year.

Below that, you can see how many people attended the Puyallup Fair during the entirety of its run, as compared to how many came to the 17-day event last year.

Sunday, September 27, 2009
2009: 88,669
2008: 77,737
Difference: +10,932

2009 total: 1,183,035
2008 total: 1,163,969
Difference: +19,066

That makes the 2009 Puyallup Fair the 19th-best attended in history of the event, which started in 1900.

    It was at the Totally Fried booth, kitty-corner from the seating area outside the Earthquake Burger stand. They had deep-fried Twinkies, cookie dough, dill pickles, alligator on a stick, the Krispy Kreme chicken sandwich and chocolate covered bacon.

    It was quite the attraction. I got the bacon and the Twinkie – the bacon was…meh. The Twinkie was HEAVEN.

  4. I’ll second the Totally Fried booth – I went several times through the day to space out my fried food intake…. My wish is for more stands next year going for alternative “crazy” fair food!

    Getting food there made me feel like a side-show – several people wanted to know what I ordered and checked it out as it came out.
