ORLAND, Calif. -- The Glenn County fair is the biggest community event in the county but saw almost ten thousand less people than they have in recent years. 

The fair usually has about twenty-five thousand people in attendance but that has significantly dropped this year with the recent rainy weather.

"The last few years, attendance has been high and we’ve been pretty happy with our crowds, of course this year its been a little different our gates on thursday and then yesterday have been down 50 percent," said Glenn County Fair manager, Miki Martin. 

Community members who have attended the fair for several years, say the fair is usually jam-packed.

"The grand stands would’ve been full with the derby I mean but it was not that full," said Jack Martins, who raises and shows animals at the fair.

Despite the rainy weather and puddles throughout the fairgrounds, those who did attend still had a great time. 

Little girls who come with their famalies every year to the fair said, "We have so much fun because my did a pig and he showed it, I had so much fun going on the rides and playing the games at the fair."

One parent said it was still a great community event even with the rain.

"Rain or shine, this community comes out and supports the fair, supports the kids and it was still a lot of fun, so it doesn’t seem like the weather really matters," said Kristin Martins. 

The Glenn County Fair activities still run until 10 p.m. Sunday night.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
