Clallam: Fair sets new attendance mark

Better weather on Sunday coupled with several competitions helped push attendance at the Clallam County Fair to a record.

Sunday attendance pushed the final figure for the four-day Clallam County Fair to 32,389, up about 300 people from last year, according to Fair Manager Sandy Bailey.

Sunday’s attendance was 6,686. Thursday’s attendance was 8,429. Friday’s figure was 8,104 and 9,170 showed up on Saturday.

The fair took in about $41,000 from the carnival, about the same as last year’s total, Bailey said.

The fair also paid about $16,000 in premiums. Money from the vendors still is being tabulated.

“I’m pretty sure it is up from last year but it is really hard to tell until we get everything counted,” she said.
