Weather a factor in attendance

The 162nd St. Joseph County Grange Fair is in the books, and organizers of the event said weather – as it usually is – was a key factor in attendance.

Though a final figure for the seven-day event won’t be available until sometime today, a sunny Saturday afternoon coupled with more than 5,000 people attending the event-ending Alan Jackson concert helped make up for a wet and cold Friday night.

The Centreville-based fair is the second-to-last county fair in the state and typically experiences a variety of extreme weather conditions. Fair officials said this year was no exception.
