NORWICH – They say “all’s well that ends well,” and although the last week has seemingly been one dose of the fair after another, it is over and according to Mary Weidman, Chenango County agricultural society president, was a huge success.
“The entire fair flowed very smoothly this year,” said Weidman. “The attendance has been up, the events were exciting and all of the participants were very cordial.”
This year’s fair had all of the attractions and events that year after year bring the people of Chenango County to the fairgrounds, with a few new additions that, according to Weidman, were a huge success and attracted a new level of attendance.
One of the most popular additions to this year’s fair was the alpaca show, which included 92 participants and became the most talked about event of the week. According to Paula Evans, a member of the fair staff, the turnout for the alpaca show was fantastic for the first year and many of the participants expressed interest in returning.
