Hamilton County Fair Hopes To Boost Attendance
HAMILTON County (WKRC-TV)- After being on the brink of ending a few years ago, the Hamilton County Fair opens today in Carthage seeking to build on recent attendance growth.
Fair organizers increased advertising, added corporate sponsors and expanded the schedule.
They hope 30,000 people show up to the fair, which runs Wednesday through Sunday.
It also features professional wrestling, demolition derbies, exotic animals and rides.
18,000 people attended last year. But that was better than the historic low of 6,500 in 2010 that had some fair officials talking about closing for good.
