We are there in Sept. for a trade show and the grounds are clean and with flowers everywhere. Grass green and well maintained. Building are well kept. Staff helpful and pleasant. I imagine it is alive with excitement during fair time!

We traveled here as a volleyball team. The parking attendants were super friendly even though they worked a 15 hour shift:)

Met with Kady in the fair office regarding plans for a display in the Modern Living Building in September. She's a professional, helpful representative of the Yakima Fair.

Enjoyed the SunDome during the high school basketball state playoffs. Great facility for this event, parking was easy and the location easy to find.

We went to visit during the 4th of July festivities. There were rides for the kids and the usual mostly deep fried food stands.

Wow prices are high. You would think venders could bring in their own water and food. They have you over a barrel. If you work 10-12 hour days you go hungry or pay a fortune.

We went to the state fair, which we haven't been to in at least 10 years. It was a great time for our whole family! We really enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit.

A huge fair, fun to just walk around and see! Wild cats to raise awareness, vendors, animals, and all the fun penny games.

just fast food, somewhat over-priced, mundane, hectic, but then the state fair was in session, understaffed, routine, not noteworthy, but ok for a quick snack if your starving, otherwise forget it, and wait for a good meal..
