A colorful midway, entertaining grandstand show, attractive commercial and youth displays, a full cattle show, boosted by ideal fair weather, combined to produce record crowds at Taylor county fairgrounds Thursday through Sunday.
The Taylor County Youth Fair, in addition to being an entertainment success, also will have operated in the black, according to initial report from fair treasurer Frank Krueger, Medford.
Attendance has been estimated at 12,000, about 2,000 more than the previous record. It is anticipated that the youth fair will clear about $800 after all expenses have been turned in and bills paid.
