I really wish that the fair board would get the memo and make the Benton Franklin Fair more reasonable to attend. The bigger fairs are less expensive to get into and they have family prices that make it reasonable to take a big family. I know many people that drive to Yakima because it is a better fair and less pricey. When attendance is down it is not always about the weather. I did not attend nor did I take my grandchildren because honestly $12 is ridiculous for the same fair every year.
I wish the board would lease re-evaluate the thought process.
