    $5 per car load? We went to the last one and they charged us per person. We weren't going to go back because we spent so much at the gate. Are you sure this is correct or perhaps someone just didn't know what they were doing?

    Quote:Yes, 5.00 per car load... we had some gripes and grumbles at the Spring event because we charged per person so we decided to cut some expenses and cut the admission as well. People don't understand that it costs us several thousand dollars to rent the fairgrounds for a weekend and we rack up several more thousand in advertising costs. We're just trying to break even which we have yet to do. We ceratianly appreciate your support and hope you do come back.

    Thank you for listening to feedback. Though we did go on the last day 4 hours before closing and right before a thunderstorm, there seemed to be more venders then in the spring. There was more to offer and more to look at and everyone was really nice. We will be going back in the fall. [​IMG]
