Even though the fair was down to two days instead of three, that didn't stop people from coming out and enjoying everything it had to offer.
"The fair went, I think, very, very well for a two day fair," explained Byron Stepp, President of the Estevan Exhibition Association. "We had great weather. The provider did well, we did well. It's still not a three day fair. I won't profess to say that I'm happy it was a two day fair, but it went well."
"Raise a little money for the Exhibition grounds there to keep things green and in shape and provide some entertainment for the kids and the adults."
He estimates that around 7,200 people passed through the gates over the two days.
"It's down from three days, it's down about 1,500 - 1,800 people. That hurts us a little bit. But Tuesday, was a record. We set a record on Tuesday for attendance for us."
There were 3,756 people at the fair on Tuesday which was 100 more than their previous record.
"We still haven't broken 4,000 and our goal is to do that in the near future but we get closer and closer every year. When we put 4,000 people through the gates in a city the size of Estevan in one day, you're doing pretty well."
He added it was great to see that the weather cooperated.
"It was gorgeous, no big winds, sunny and warm. Of course, our refreshment gardens liked that it was hot."
Stepp shared that they are in discussions with the fair provider on whether they will keep the fair at two days or go back to a three-day event. No decisions have been made.
"We also expressed concerns that it is during final exams. And that it's during the week. We'd love to have a fair right after final exams on a weekend. But when you're moving that kind of machinery up and down the road, it has to line up otherwise you're going back and forth and burning fuel and time."
Nevertheless, Stepp is looking forward to next year. He shared that West Coast Amusements will have a brand new ride ready for next year's fair and that they hope to add to the entertainment during the fair as well.
"We love the fact that Estevan and the surrounding area supported us. I saw people there from Yorkton, people there from Lang so they were from everywhere. I need to thank them on behalf of the board and the Ag Society for their support. It was awesome. And I also want to thank my volunteers and my staff, they did an exceptional job of running things smoothly to the point where I felt that I should be doing something but there wasn't much to do. It was absolutely wonderful."
