Beer stand receipts this year were $19,867, up from $18,467 last year, but less than the $19,930 in 2017.
Income on Sunday was less than the previous year, likely due to the heat, but was higher on Saturday than the previous year.
Soda and beer sales were higher both days than last year.
Expenses for food, soda, and beer are not calculated, so the profit is not yet known.
Carnival ride receipts were $5,248 for three days, down from $5,467 last year and $5,560 in 2017.
Receipts from the Queen Pageant have not yet been reported to the Fair treasurer.
