Will there ever be benches along the Midway at the Fair? Your Stories Question

Geddes (WSYR-TV) – While kids love the rides, many parents are looking for a place to rest.

A NewsChannel 9 viewer asked if the New York State Fair has considered benches along the Midway.

According to Assistant Fair Director Troy Waffner, the Fair hadn't considered benches until the question was brought to them.

He says now Fair administrators have taken a closer look at seating options on the Midway.

There were about 35 benches along that stretch of the Fairgrounds and another 10 benches or picnic tables were added last week.

There’s even a tent covering a few tables so people can escape from the sun.

Waffner wants feedback from Fair goers. He says you can email him with ideas. Email your ideas to: newyorkstatefair@agriculture.ny.gov.
