Has the fair started? I talked with my acquaintance again and he said they trot them out for the main entrances and post them when the fair begins, and at one of the other entrances with a ticket-taker shack that you have to pass through, there is a sign facing outward over the shack and when the fair begins they put an additional sign on the fence back from the shack.

I got a couple of pictures of one of the entrances (not the main one) showing the sign:

And he says they add another sign on the fence to the right as you approach the ticket booth, and you do have to pass through the booth to enter at this entrance.

Is that Miami County? NM. Just saw the file names of the pictures.

Which entrance is that at? I was at the main entrance on 25-A but the gate was locked as well as the couple of service entrances along 25-A. I also went to the one on Harrison St. where it makes the 90deg bend. Google maps says it is 3rd and Harrison. Bing maps says it is Harrison all the way to 25-A.

He didn't say which entrance that was, but he did mention there were two other entrances. From a close look at Google Maps, I think it is just off of Columbus Ave on the North side of the fairgrounds, just south of the big open field that looks like parking.

That was my impression too, but they supposedly also put up signs on the fences when the fair starts.

Wow, talk about a major brain cramp - my most sincere apologies. I have no idea where my disconnect came from, but indeed this is *Erie* county not Miami. I hope I have not put you through too much hassle - and if you are at the PITP I'll buy you lunch or something... :)

I contacted the Erie County Fair president after I found out they where posted last year. After a very long conversation with him he blew up on me and said fine I will go there right now and rip them all down is that what you want from me!!!

I replied with yes thats why I am calling you :lol:

They did take down all the signs that I seen except the one in the photo. I talked with a lady today that assured me that it would come down before the gates opened tomorrow. I reminded her that we did give them a full year to get into compliance.

I will check it out on my way to work in the AM.

Well, there used to be a Miami-Erie Canal that ran from Cincinnati to Toledo. :mrgreen: There are still pieces of it and some locks remain.

No problems though. Miami County Fairgrounds is only a few miles up the road from me. Was nice to see/confirm that they weren't posted.

Unfortunately, already have family function that is scheduled for the PitP weekend.

Pretty sad that the Fair President deals with the public in such a manner and has such an issue simply complying with State law.
