Inside KELOLAND: County Fair Season

August 10, 2007, 4:11 PM

Inside KELOLAND: County Fair Season
The Midways are lit up and grandstands are ready for action. It's county fair season in KELOLAND. 
The Sioux Empire Fair just wrapped up, but one of the state's oldest fairs is just getting ready to open its gates. 
The Turner County Fair is one of the most successful.
With a population of 86-hundred people... Last year the fair drew in more than 60-thousand people. 
While attendance can make or break a fair, the event can also impact the local communities. 

The State Fair in Huron attracts anywhere from 100 to 200 thousand people a year, the Sioux Empire Fair in Sioux Falls draws 240 to 280 thousand people and the Turner County Fair in Parker - 60 thousand. 

Compare that to the city population and you can just imagine the impact any thriving fair has on its hosting community.


                                       Attendance           Population
SD State Fair               Up to 200,000      11,000 (Huron)
Sioux Empaire Fair     Up to 280,000      150,000 (Sioux Falls)
Turner Co. Fair            Up to 60,000        1,000 (Parker)

Brown County Fair
