Fair numbers up

FERNDALE- Officials with the Humboldt County Fair said attendance was up this year. They estimate a 22 percent increase from last year.

This year's fair lasted one day longer than in 2013. The organization had a new superintendent, which fair officials said brought in a new perspective.

There were new events like the sea lion show and celebrity guests, like Guy Fieri, that attracted fair goers out. Horse racing they said brought in as many attendees as expected.
