99th MontanaFair Sets All-time Records

BILLINGS, Mont. -

The 99th MontanaFair was a huge hit this year, as the event was able to break a few all-time records.

With more than $1.8 million taken in, the fair sets a new record in total revenue.

The Mighty Thomas Carnival rides took in just under a million dollars.

MetraPark General Manager, Bill Dutcher says the record setting year was due to great weather and tremendous night shows.

He says ValuPass holders really used their passes throughout the Supercross and Rodeos.

Dutcher was very excited about this record setting year, but also shared some intel about something else already in the works.

"Next year is the 100 anniversary of MontanaFair. When I was a kid it was Midland Empire Fair and then it was Yellowstone Exhibition, but the fair in Yellowstone County, 100-year anniversary next year and it's all systems go."

The 100th Anniversary of MontanaFair is set to take place August 7th through the 15th of 2015.
