  1. Now if they’d put out a bunch of seating and shade structure so seniors felt welcome to come! We haven’t been to our new fairgrounds yet, because we’ve been told it’s very hot and there’s very little seating or shade!

  2. That’s so awesome!!! I hadn’t been going because paying for us to only be there for maybe 20min at the most because let’s face it littles can’t do the 2-12shifts lol i mean we are on there time not ours but this is awesome and less costly
