Revenue at the York Fair is right on target this year.  Fair President, Gene Schenck says this year’s fair is the best he’s seen in many years.  But he says compared to last year’s record 646,000 ticket sales, sales are currently down about 20,000 in the first four days.  With promising weather for the weekend, Schenck says he’s not worried.

Schenk says, “This doesn’t have to set a record every year.  It just has to please the community every year.  And that’s what it’s doing.  People are really happy.  Getting great comments about how clean the midways are, no litter, midways are wider now.”
