Another York Fair is in the books. The 2013 York Fair wrapped up Sunday evening, after 10 days of fun, food and games.
General Manager Gene Schenck says turnout was great this year.
While some patrons complained about hot weather and parking expenses, he says the fair is following the trend from recent years: an increasing number of people enjoying the fair on weekends and less coming in during the week.
It will take a few days to tear down and clean everything up.
“This is the best Fair we’ve had. Everything is up, the number of livestock entries is up, we have more people going to the Grandstand, we have more people riding the rides. We have more people buying more food than they ever bought before and look at the crowd, it’s fantastic,” Schenck says.
He also says the Fair has cut back on litter over the years, which will make the clean up much easier.
