I think the Puyallup fair doesn’t want more visitors

Yesterday Amanda and I decided to go to the Puyallup fair. We left Kirkland at 2:30 and made it to the parking lot at 5:20. Normally it takes about 50 minutes to drive between here and there, but there was a lot of traffic. Then when we made it there we had to wait in a slow moving queue to purchase tickets. We finally made it into the fair a little before six. The whole time we were slowly crawling along in traffic I was thinking about how the Puyallup fair would try to do more about the traffic situation. For one thing, they seriously need a light dedicated to the Golden Gate parking lot. Having really bad traffic means that less people will be coming to the fair, and it also means that people will have less time to spend money at the fair. Surely the fair organizers want more people to come and be able to spend more time at the fair.

When we made it inside the fair my thinking started to change. The fair grounds where packed; they were really packed. I think that the fair organizers don’t care about getting more people in because what would they do with more people. There were queue’s for everything. It took us forty minutes to get two hamburgers. We spend most of the evening standing in a queue. The only place were we weren’t standing in a queue was when we were looking at all of the award winning displays; which is kind of what you pay to into the fair for in the first place.

I still think that Puyallup should do a better job at getting people in and out of the fair. Especially with the nightmare we had getting out of their last night.
