You can’t dance around the issue of Fair prices

-A A +A
By Steve Doyle

The sticker shock is stunning, something that makes you turn your head and look for a second time.

Then you hear the kicker: Every time you play, you have to pay.

We’re talking about the weekend admission to the Shelby County Fair.

$10. Not chump change, considering that rides, food and everything else cost extra.

And, yes, if you want to attend the fair in the afternoon and return when the weather cools, you have to pay again.

Take in a cattle show or a baby show, you have to pay another $10 to come back later and ride the rides.
