Crowds still strong at Ga. National Fair

PERRY -- While still well within the range of previous years, attendance at the 23rd Georgia National Fair is slightly down after the opening weekend.
Michele Treptow blames the forecast for great weather through the end of the festival.
Though it seems counter-intuitive, Treptow, who is director of communications for the fair, said she thinks because the weather has been great so far and should continue to be so through Oct. 14, there’s less pressure for people to show up early because they are afraid of bad weather occurring later in the week.
“We have such a great forecast for all 11 days that there’s really not a rush to come out,” she said.
Still, she said the number of those who did show up for the first weekend is “well within the normal range.” Attendance figures for the first weekend won’t be available until Monday.
Treptow said Saturday night’s concert, featuring former “American Idol” singer Kellie Pickler and Joe Nichols, didn’t sell out. In previous years, bigger-name acts such as Blake Shelton last year and Miranda Lambert the year before sold out the fair’s 8,000-seat venue easily.
