sunny all the way here and then rain, rain, rain. did get chance to see some of the fair. no bulb count as the rain caused problems. they were working on the issues as it was drying out. new vip line pass in effect here, new flags, new center joint designs. ride list is on wade's website so no need for that. heat been a problem as is everywhere. wonderful meal with Frank as we have 18 people on this trip and some also saw Toby Keith. they are headed to several other fairs in the Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia areas. I have to go back for a job related meeting. going back by in the morning before heading south.

very, very nice fair. good job by the fair staff and also Wade Shows. only fair in the state and self supporting - no tax dollars or government affiliation except for agencies displaying at fair. Fair even owns major interest in a Casino on the grounds. there are festivals but they are the only Agricultural Fair. we are always stealing ideas to use for our fair and we gained several to implement over the years. Weather was sunny and warm this morning and the crowd was rolling in this morning and many were taking advantage of the misting systems on Wades entrance sign as well as the fairs. Kids especially and many adults.

Wade Shows has been playing the Delaware State Fair since 1999 or so.
