The numbers are down because ND now has one of the highest suicide rates for middle-aged White men.

Thanks, Tea Party. Thanks for all the death.

I concur with @IceFishing101 - Fake Journey and Fake CCR are just barely second string casino acts. The rock band booking this year was horrible.

I'm sure they were able to book these bands at a lower fee than bigger name bands, but as the old saying goes, you got to spend money to make money!

With the population explosion in the NW part of the state there should be no reason attendance records aren't easily set....UNLESS people are turned off by low quality and high prices, which I have heard from several people is the case.

I believe that the rock music portion of the concerts is lacking. Journey with a 5'-0" Asian not Steve Perry is not going to bring in the whopping crowds you want. They are a 4 bears act, not a NDSF act!

I was very disappointed in the commercial building turn out this year. Really not anything different for people to see. Need to find a way to get a better assortment of vendors in them. I feel that the same thing over and over again, is boring. This is the only reason that I go to the fair. Was highly disappointed.

Here's an idea. Get some shuttles out in the east parking lot to assist the elderly and those who cannot walk the distance. The Hostfest figured this out, why can't the fair board?
