For the first time in the history of the San Miguel/Mora County Fair, an entrance fee will be charged, but only on the last day.
Visitors to the 43rd annual fair will get in free on Aug. 10, 11 and 12, but will be asked to pay $5 per person on Aug. 13.
“We’re a nonprofit,” said Ted Roybal, president of the fair’s board of directors. “We have a very limited budget where we get money from to continue to put on a good fair.”
