T.O. Fair Follow Up

This year is the 20th year of the Texas Oklahoma Fair. It seemed like the majority of Texomans came out be a part of the fun September 16th through September 20th.

"It has been really good we've had some good crowds a lot of people have come out," said T.O. Fair Chair, Janis Linville.

The good crowd at the T.O. Fair was due to the new rides, the new circus venture act and the hypnotist, Michael Blaine.

"The spider that was pretty amazing," said T.O. Fair attendee, Addison Kimberling.

Now that the T.O. Fair is over for 2014, Fair Chair, Linville is looking forward to next year.

"We hope that we still have the success that we've had this year and in previous years.  We give a lot of the profit back to the community, so we're always looking forward to that," said Linville.

Overall, it seems like everyone in attendance had their fair share of fun.

"I think it's wonderful that they get to come out and enjoy it," said Linville.

"Just seeing new experiences and having fun with my family," said T.O. Fair attendee, Amy Bursh.

The Texas Oklahoma Fair is put on by the Founder Lions Club of Wichita Falls and will be back in 2015 for its 21st year, with even more fun and bigger entertainment.

Fair officials won't know the exact amount of money that was made during the T.O. Fair's four day run until a few weeks.

The money collected from the T.O. Fair will go to many scholarships and charitable organizations in the community.
