Erie County Fair Passes 1 Million Mark

HAMBURG, NY - Thousands of Western New Yorkers took advantage of one of the biggest county fairs in New York State. The Erie County Fair wrapped up Sunday night, after a nearly two-week run. And fair organizer say they couldn't have asked for a better turn-out.
The fair's Marketing Director, Louanne Delaney, tells 2 On Your Side that the great weather over the past couple of weeks helped push fair attendance just over 1 million. Delaney says good fair attendance is also good for the overall Western New York economy.
"Hotels are all booked. We have a lot of people coming in from out of town that capitalize the infrastructure, businesses around the area. When they get some time off, they run up to Niagara Falls, taking the sites, taking some of the recommendations that we have."
On Sunday, the rain held out long enough for last-minute fair goers to get in all the food, rides and other entertainment the fair had to offer on its last day, including the world's largest demolition derby. FROM WGRZ-TV
