Should We Move the State Fair Date?



      HOISINGTON, Kan. - A proposal to move the Kansas State Fair to Labor Day weekend is getting bad reviews from supporters of traditional fair. Leaders in Hoisington and Barton County are concerned the proposal would overshadow Hoisington's 117-year-old Labor Day celebration. The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/HCBnEs ) Hoisington city council members plan to pass a resolution saying they oppose an idea pushed by Gov. Sam Brownback to start the state fair on Labor Day weekend. Barton County Commissioners signed a similar resolution Monday stating they strongly oppose the idea. Brownback has said moving the start date of the State Fair would increase attendance. Hoisington's celebration started in 1896 and is one of the state's largest Labor Day events.
