Tonight, Lee Brice & Steel Magnolia played a concert here at our county fair. Some of our parking crew predicted that the crowds would be huge. I don't know if the severe thunderstorm a few hours had anything to do the smaller crowd, but once again, the rough truck crowd was larger. I had a 3:15 doctor appointment. I figured I would be able to make it to the fair by 4:30 to park. At 5:15, I left the doctor's office. At least I didn't get caught outside in the torrential downpour.
There were, however, more people trying to sneak into the fair than any other night. No less than two dozen attempted to sneak in. The vast majority were apprehended by the deputies or the horseback patrol. The lucky ones were escorted to the gate to pay to get in, or leave if they couldn't pay. There were other who had charges pressed against them. The fine is more than the $5 saved. I really don't understand it. Five bucks. It just isn't worth it.
