Manager: Attendance up, weather good, events popular
By Amy Kronenberger
WAPAKONETA - Terrific is the word Fred Piehl used to sum up the 160th Auglaize County Fair that concludes today.
"It went terrific," said the longtime fair manager. "It's been exceptionally good, and that's what we work for. We had our challenges, but we're really pleased."
Piehl said attendance increased about 15 percent every day except Wednesday, which was "about average."
"We credit a lot of the success to the weather, and hopefully it's something we're doing right," he said. [More]
