Coastal Empire Fair wraps up


The 2013 Coastal Empire Fair has officially wrapped up for the season.

Fairgoers had one more chance to enjoy the fair on Sunday afternoon. Organizers say the new rides were very well received, and  that they had a good turnout this year.

The new and improved security measures were also well received. Improvements included metal detectors and bag checks at the gate, and police were stationed throughout the fair.


"You know, it makes our patrons feel safer and that's the main thing we wanted to accomplish was for everybody, and families in particular, to come out and that's what we're seeing. Especially today, being Sunday, lots of groups and families coming out having a great time and that's what we want to do." said Chris Hafer, President of the Coastal Empire Fair.

Sunday was the last day for the fair. However, be sure to mark your calendars, they'll be back around this time next year.
