Bangor State Fair a Success 

The 160-th Bangor State Fair wrapped up Sunday at Bass Park…and organizers say it was a huge success.With the economy in trouble, fair directors weren’t sure what to expect, but say their new ten dollar wristband promotion seemed to work.For the first time, folks could buy a wristband for one price and get admission to the grounds, shows and all the rides they want.Bass Park Director Mike Dyer says the wristband idea was in response to the tough economic times, and it seemed to be popular with families attending the fair.He says attendance was up…and so was spending.
