Default Boone Co. Fair - terrible

This year's fair was Awful! No actual rides for the kids, only blow up stuff, that's a crock of sh*t! I heard the carnival over booked and the other story I heard was Boone did not want to pay for the carnival. Sponsors usually get tickets to all events, this year, they got tickets for one event. The tickets were ridiculously generic. I could have used my half ticket from the Separate Ways (Journey tribute band) to get in to the mud bogs on Sunday. The concert was good, but they will never be back as hardly anyone showed up- probably cause there was no alcohol served at the fair at all. I know the fair is supposed to be for the kids, if so, maybe they should actually have stuff for the kids to do! I heard most of the kids n families that had events to attend there left right after the event. Probably because there was Nothing to do!!!!!! And the mud bogs were so unorganized it was not even funny. You'd think after doing events like this every year they would have their act together but they didn't. How PATHITIC! Very glad I didn't have to pay for the events I attended. I could have heard and enjoyed listening to the concert from my house they were so loud!

That's true. So why bother having a fair at all? Maybe they should just combine the stupid fair with Pufferbilly Days then.

Did they used to have a rodeo during the Boone County Fair?

So that you can complain about it. That is the only logical reason that I can think of.

Boone has a fair for the same reason Nevada has a fair, to qualify 4-H projects for the State Fair.
