Grimes said food court numbers were also up, positive news for the many organizations that are using the facility as a fundraiser.  “Overall, the weather was gorgeous and there were good reviews on the new presentation of our Food & Festival Village, with fair goers saying it was spacious and inviting,” she said.

Grimes continued saying the Livestock & Poultry area had many visitors as well as the products tent.
