Should the State Fair Return to Yakima?
Where should the Washington State Fair be located? Last year the Puyallup Fair officially changed it’s name to the State Fair of Washington. That decision didn’t sit well with the Central Washington State Fair Board, since the state fair was originally designated to Yakima. Now local officials want the legislature to return that state fair designation to the Yakima Fair. Yesterday several local leaders, including Greg Stewart, the President of the Central Washington State Fair went to Olympia to lobby lawmakers to anoint the Central Washington State Fair as the official state fair of Washington.
The Yakima City Council today put its stamp of approval on the fair boards efforts in olympia
