Nearly 8,000 attended Caroline County Agricultural Fair
Nearly 8,000 people attended the Caroline County Agricultural Fair, which was held in July, the president of the fair told the Board of Supervisors Monday night.
That’s a decrease over last year–which had 9,500 people in attendance including vendors and volunteers. Part of that can be attributed to rainy days during the fair.
Francine Whittaker told the board that 7,988 people attended the fair and more than 9,000 volunteer hours were spent working at the fair.
In 2012, attendance was 7,490, according to a presentation given last year.
Whittaker said 6,500 pounds of cans were collected at the fair and donated to the Department of Social Services Food Pantry.
The 2014 fair is scheduled for July 9-12, 2014.
