by Mike Dalton
Cannon Valley Fair Board members were pleased with the 98th annual Cannon Valley Fair, which came to a close Saturday night, July 6.
Crowds were great the first two night, July 3 and 4, fair secretary Phyllis Althoff said. The demolition derby held July 3 was standing-room only, she said.
"Attendance was down the final two days; I think we lost people to cabins, work, etc. We're creatures of habit, and I think it hurt a bit to go beyond the 4th of July.
"We get such great support from the community and local businesses, and that continued again this year," Althoff continued. "And the weather really shined on the fair this year, but I think we deserved it!"
Fair board members will meet Monday and discuss the good and bad of the 2013 fair - and will start meeting again in September to start planning the 2014 celebration.
