ONTARIO — She is still counting the total number of attendees but Malheur County Fair Manager Lynelle Christiani already knows one thing: The 2017 fair was a success.

“It went very well,” said Christiani. “This was my best fair yet.”

Christiani said in terms of proceeds the fair is ahead of where it was last year.

Only Friday night, said Christiani, was down in terms of the number of patrons.

Thursday night – where the fair board recognized volunteers and those who donate – was very successful, said Christiani.

“It was an amazing evening. The fair board was able to speak and tell these people how much we appreciate them. At 12:30 a.m. we were still trying to get people out of the facility,” said Christiani.

Saturday night also attracted large numbers, she said.

“The grandstands were packed for the rodeo,” said Christiani.
