The numbers are in from the Deschutes County Fair, and organizers are calling it a very successful one. Paid attendance was up by 10%.  The Expo Center's Director Dan Despotopulos says several factors contributed to the best attendance since 2008. “You know we had exceptional weather, we've kept prices reasonable. We had free buses; free concerts and over 37,000 came out to them. So there was a lot of things to see and do.” More than 73,000 people paid to go to the fair this year.” That's up from 67,000 last year.  Overall, including those who got free admission because they worked at booths and exhibits, nearly a quarter of a million people attended the Deschutes County Fair a couple weeks ago.
