Day 1 of the Erie County Fair

Day 1 of the Erie County Fair

Well fairgoers, your big day has finally arrived!  The 174th Erie County Fair opened its gates on Wednesday, and opened them to quite a crowd! 

Wednesday was Channel 2 Day so with a donation of canned goods to benefit the Food Bank of WNY you could get free admission to the Fair.  It was such a good feeling to see so many people making food donations.  The Fair had a great system for the donations.  There was  a tent area set up and all you had to do was walk up to the fine people manning the area, hand them your canned goods donation, and you were given a stub to exchange for an admission ticket.  The process was simple and quite efficient considering the number of fairgoers that were at the gate.

Making Sure The Fair Games Are Fair

HAMBURG, NY - As the 174th Erie County Fair gets under way in Hamburg, officials want everyone to know the games along the midway are on the up and up.

Just a few hours before the gates opened inspectors from a number of police agencies tried out some of the games of skill.

Channel 2 Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke followed along to see what law enforcement officers are looking for to make sure that the fair games are indeed fair.
