Rain could not stop the success of this year's East Texas State Fair

Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) - The East Texas State Fair is over and organizers are tallying up how well it did, after being hit with major rain storms.

Workers spent the day cleaning up the fair grounds. By tomorrow they'll be clear.
     
Meanwhile, fair President John Sykes says this year's fair still made fifteen percent more money than last year's.

 

"You know, it's interesting, I caught myself the other day already searching for new attractions for next year," says Sykes.

"Making some phone calls and what have you. Because I thought our attractions this year were the best we've ever had. People really seemed to enjoy all that we had out here."

The fair's goal for next year is at least two all-new attractions to draw people in.
