Turlock, CA (August 3, 2017) – From high divers on fire to flying drones and pig races, the 106th Stanislaus County Fair brought in crowds from various places.
Residents picked the Stanislaus County Fair as their destination for the summer and drew in over 235,000 guests during its 10-day run, an 8 percent increase from 2016. The Fair opened on Friday, July 14 and concluded its annual run on Sunday, July 23, 2017. Fair concessions were down 3 percent and Butler Amusement, the fair ride operator, was up 15 percent compared to 2016.
“This year was successful even with the heat we experienced. Like other events, the heat had an impact on our weekend attendance,” said Matt Cranford, chief executive officer of the Stanislaus County Fair. “But our community supports and enjoys this Fair. That support helped us to see an 8 percent increase in attendance over last year.”
