DAVIS FAIR EXPANDS IN ATTENDANCE AND FUN

SHARE DAVIS FAIR EXPANDS IN ATTENDANCE AND FUN

"Come for More in '94" is the slogan of this year's Davis County Fair, and come they have.

Attendance is up at this year's fair, which runs through Saturday night at the county fairpark in west Farmington, according to fair officials.More attractions, more exhibits, a new food court and live entertainment nightly are some of the reasons for the increased attendance. Because the fair is free, no precise attendance figures are kept but estimates of past attendance are put at around 10,000.

The only fair event that charges an entry fee is the nightly CRC rodeo. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children and $15 for families.

Larger 4H and arts, crafts and horticulture exhibits, plus an increase in commercial and informational entries, prompted fair officials to add a second exhibit tent on the grounds this year.

The Joe Muscolino Big Band headlined the free entertainment on the outdoor stage opening night Thursday; Friday's package will include the Powder Ridge Bluegrass Band. The Blue Diamond Western Band plays Saturday night for the fair's finale.
