You Can See Remnants Of The Tornado At The Fair This Year
We can all remember when the tornado touched down and left a path of destruction at the fairgrounds. Many people wondered if the fair would be able to go on as scheduled, the good news is that it will go on. Assistant Fair Manager Jessica Underberg said that nothing is cancel at the fair this year. It's a big nod to all the hard workers that have been working around the clock to clean up, repair the damage and still continue their normal set up process leading up to the fair!
Marty Biniasz, Erie County Agricultural Society Marketing Manager, said that during the clean up they took a step back and said,
"Wow. That was a historic thing we just went through, people are going to be remembering this for decades to come.... We want to show people some of that damage because come to the fair on opening day and they're going to have to look really hard because our crews, our contractors, our fair staff have done such a remarkable job, but we wanted to show the power of this."
Fairgoers this year will be able to see the destruction left by the tornado in a special "Fairnado Exhibit" in the Heritage & History Center located in 1885 Octagon Building.
