Some suggestions:

If our fair is going to ever be worth the price of admission again it needs some modernizing.

1

Talk to the I-502 growers around the county and the casino. Get donations then hire a Professional music group to play. You could even sell tickets for the stands to help cover the cost. This huge industry would be happy to contribute.

2

Offer discounted or free vendor spaces and some sort of perk for out of town food trucks to come here and set up for the weekend. We could have a consumer choice contest and offer a whole pork as the prize for the food truck that wins.

3

Either force the carnival you hire to actually provide a large entertainment selection or get a new one.

Also, it is 2017, is L-bow the clown really a good investment?

You need to bring in some sort of actual outside display. Years ago you The Reptile man filled a barn with animals we don’t literally see every single day. There are all kinds of traveling shows just for fairs. Do some research. Find one. Hire them.
