Clean-Up Begins at Fairgrounds

They say all good things must come to end, including the Muskingum County Fair.

Games, attractions and lots of good food came with the fair this year, but what was once a park full of entertainment, will soon be barren. During the clean-up Sunday, Owner of Grillin’ Dave-Style, Dave Dailey, discussed his clean-up process.

“Well, I’m going to start with last week, we left a neighboring fair on Saturday night, closed the door at 11 p.m. and opened here at 11 a.m. on Sunday the very next morning, so that was a fast move, this is where we’re home and we’re real tired, it’s day 14, but a lot of us in this industry do that, we took a little break this morning and now we’re just going to slowly go through and get everything back, and get ready for the next fair in about 3 weeks,” Dailey said.

Dailey told us what only takes a few hours to set-up, could take days to tear down, but he sid it’s worth it, as the great weather brought large crowds every day.

“The week was great, we moved into a new location here at the fair, had seating, people could sit out and rest, have some shade and get out of the sun, luckily we had hardly any rain, but sales were great and the crowd was very good here, so pleased how it went,” Dailey said.

And as the Fair Board President, Darrel Cubbison said, preparations are already beginning for next year.
