Julie Burton is a busy lady.
She’s in charge of organizing the Lancaster County Super Fair. Two days before the fair opens, that means directing vendors and exhibits and answering a lot of questions.
“So those questions happen every five minutes,” she said. “All day, the setup is what is most intense.”
You won’t hear Julie complain. All the buzz means things are coming along well. If she’s helping a lot of vendors, that means there are a lot of vendors at the fair.
But Julie says the next few days are, “crazy.”
“It's all that stuff to get ready, getting vendors set, the exhibits set, the rides, the porta potties. All the stuff you never see behind the scenes.”
“The overall organization is just one piece of the puzzle,” Burton adds. “Vendors have a lot of work to do too and before you get that first funnel cake or go on the first ride there is a lot of setup to be done. It’ll be fine there.”
Troy Kring and his family operate a new attraction at this year’s fair: The Krazy Maze. Or at least it will be. It’s more of a puzzle when they start.
“It's 3000 pieces and we set it all up and then it rings to the trailer which will be the ticket booth.”
Troy says he’ll be ready. Julie knows she will be too.
This year’s fair is looking to be bigger than ever with something for everyone.
