The Rochester fair is making some changes for next season.

Instead of a four day schedule that the fair ran last fall, the fair's board has decided to double the length and open the Rochester Fair for 8 days next fall.

In an article at Fosters.com, the proposed dates are Thursday thru Sunday, Sept. 13-16 and Thursday thru Sunday, Sept. 20-23.

The votes to change the time frame included the intention to possibly have more more demolition and bus derby events which have proven to be a big draw, according to the article.

This is welcomed news for those of us who frequented the Fair for many years, and yes, I even drove in the bus derby years ago!

Perhaps I'll get another chance soon!
