Madera -  The Madera District Fair ended it's four day run Sunday night. Crowds of Maderan's hit the carnival for the ten dollar wristband day and the fair saw record attendance. Two concerts, Billy Currington and OneRepublic sold out before the fair began and rock fans partied down to an American Band: Grand Funk Railroad. 

The kids of 4H and FFA showed and sold their animals. The photos and quilts wowed visitors with the talent that exists in Madera. The gardens gave people ideas of what they might want to do in their own backyards. The 20/30 Club sold out of tri-tip sandwiches in their quest to support youth programs. The Madera Fair was more than just corn dogs and thrill rides.

The Madera Fair is the one place the entire town comes together for a yearly reunion, either around the Rotary, Lions, 20/30 or Pan American booths. It's the place where cheerleaders perform outside and salsa or buffalo wings are judged inside. It's just a glimpse of what is good about Madera and in 361 days we will all do it over again.

We will see you there.
