MORRIS – The Otsego County Fair continues boasting theme of the “six best days of summer” providing live entertainment, carnival rides, demolition derbies and countless other events from Aug. 4-9 in Morris.
Fair Manager Judy Harris said that by the end of last year’s event, more than 37,000 patrons had visited the Morris fairgrounds, averaging about 7,400 daily.
“Last year we had a good number of people show and we’re hoping that it’ll continue this year despite the economic down turn. If we hold steady from last year, we’ll be pleased,” she said.
The Red Cross will have food collection bins at the fair’s front gate this year, and Harris said organizers are dealing with an increasing demand for the charity.
