The State Fair opens TOMORROW after sitting out a year due to COVID. Fair spokeswoman Danielle Dullinger says:

“Over the course of this year we have lost 150 vendors, some of those reasons are obviously due to COVID concerns, but they’re also due to short staffing, we’ve heard of a couple family emergencies and supply chain issues.”

Dullinger says there will still be nearly a thousand vendors at the fair–including 61 new merchandise vendors and nine brand new food vendors. She’s asking all fairgoers to wear a mask indoors and outdoors when appropriate.
