Fair Manager Touts Solid Numbers


The numbers are looking good heading into the final weekend of the Illinois State Fair, according to manager Amy Bliefnick.

 

Appearing live on 970 WMAY from the Fair Friday, Bliefnick says attendance figures at midweek were running about 2% ahead of last year's sizable crowds.  Bliefnick says the numbers got a lift from the huge crowds at Wednesday's Toby Keith concert... and thinks good weather and big-name weekend acts like Ke$ha and Journey can help maintain that pace.

 

Bliefnick also defends the big money that the state shells out for Grandstand acts.  She says the state still makes more money than it spends from those shows, because big crowds for the top acts also mean more money from gate admissions, parking, and concessions.
