DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Montgomery County Fair could have a new home in 2015.
It took officials nearly two hours to make a decision on the future of the fair, splitting the vote in two separate ballots, according to a lawyer for the Montgomery County Agricultural Society.
Fair officials say it has been a tough decision.
"We're talking about the site," said John Yancik, Vice-President of the Montgomery County Agricultural Society. "It's been talked about for a lot of years. It's a continuing thing."
2 News first reported the news that the fair could be moving to one of two sites.
Those are located at National Road and State Route 49, and Arlington Road Near Interstate 70.
Despite the possible change, fair officials say plans continue for the fair to return here next year.
They are hoping to capture the same energy as this year.
"Of the six days, we had success," said Yancik. "And we encourage everyone in 2014 to come out and see what success was in 2013. We're hoping for a good 2014."
Preparations are already being made for 2014.
Whether or not it is the fair's swan song at the current site, is still left to be determined.
"Where we go from there, I really can't say at this point in time," said Yancik. "I will say that in 2014 here on S. Main St., the Montgomery County Fair will be here and we hope it will be another success."
A lawyer for the organization said the board plans to make a decision by their next official meeting in December.
