Rock County 4-H Fair Board President Bob Arndt says he's getting a lot of positive reaction to this year's exhibition.


Arndt says everyone did a great job, and the crowds seemed to have a good time. Especially popular was expanding the rodeo to two days. He says that's a show that really puts butts in the seats. Mutton Busting also turned out to be a popular spectator sport, but Arndt had wished for more entrants.


As far as attendance, Arndt says the weather appears to have had an impact, with about 74,000 attending this year, compared to about 80,000 last year. The five year running average, including this year, is about 85,000.
