SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC NEWS) – People looking for information on the New York State Fair are being misled by some websites listing events that the New York State Fair administration building do not have a record of. Public relations manager, Dave Bullard says that people should get their information from the fair’s official websites.
“We have two websites,” he says. “Lots of good things can happen on those websites.”
The sites offer users the ability to see schedules of events and locations of food and merchandise; and, most importantly, accurate events and information. There is even a feature that allows for fairgoers to customize their own agenda for the day. As the fair gets closer, the websites will be updated with even more information, times and schedules. It is all part of the preparation for such a large event.
“It takes about a good month to set up for an invasion of 1.2 million people,” says Bullard in reference to the actual physical setup of the fairgrounds.
The more that fairgoers rely on the official websites, the better information they will receive. They also have a Twitter page. The New York State Fair begins on Aug. 21 and lasts until Sept. 2.
