State Fair Manager Disputes Topinka's Comments On High Prices At Fair


The manager of the Illinois State Fair says the event is getting a bum rap from Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. 

 

Topinka told 970 WMAY this week that five-dollar corn dogs and cups of beer make the fair too expensive for the average family. 

 

But fair manager Amy Bliefnick notes Illinois has the lowest state fair ticket price in the nation.  She also says there are lots of low-cost food items and free entertainment on the grounds.  And she says higher prices aren’t the fair’s fault… since it hasn’t raised vendor fees in years.
