Heat, economy blamed for attendance drop at fair
Jaycees: ‘The heat killed us’

Despite disappointingly sparse attendance at the Jefferson City Jaycees Cole County Fair, it was a success, according to fair chairman Joe Heard.
Though record high temperatures and economic downturn thinned the crowds at the fair, the Jaycees have received nothing but positive feedback from those who braved the heat and spent their money, Heard said.
