Things have been busy and I haven’t posted on here for a little while but I will try to get caught up here, or you can catch me out at the Western Idaho Fair.
The fair is in full swing. Attendance is up. At the halfway mark, we have seen 95,306 attendees this year compared with 90,803 last year at the same time.
Over 7700 people were there with me last night at the Foreigner concert, which was included free with paid fair admission. The band played a number of crowd-pleasing favorites such as “Cold as Ice,” “Urgent” and “Double Vision.” It was an energetic and entertaining performance.
The upcoming lineup of this year’s free concerts includes:
• Rodney Atkins – August 26, 7:30 PM
• The Four Tops – August 27, 7:30 PM
• Blake Shelton – August 28, 7:30 PM
Food and beverage sales at the fair are also up. It seems our local celebration of agriculture provides one of the best opportunities for affordable family entertainment in the area. I want to make sure it stays that way by keeping admission prices affordable. Come out and have some fun with us at the Western Idaho Fair!
