Clallam County Fair wrapped up its annual four-day stint Sunday without a hitch, but officials are saying Saturday’s unusual August downpours lowered the event’s overall attendance.
“I think it was a great fair,” Sandy Bailey, county fair manager, said late Sunday afternoon, shortly before the fair gates closed for the final time.
“I think attendance will be down because of the rainy weather.”
Thursday’s opening day was attended by 8,885, up about 700 from last year, and Friday’s gate saw 6,868 pass through, up 400 from 2003, Bailey said.
Saturday’s numbers were down, but how much was not known Sunday.
