Last week was the Employee Training event, where over 500 employees and staff who work the Fair gathered together to learn about what is in store for this year. Everything from the entertainment venue and special exhibits and attractions on the grounds were covered. Oh, and not to forget the raffles and the hot dogs provided to us at the end of the presentation.
