"It's where I've wanted to work since I was a little kid and I'm very fortunate that I get to . . . work at the State Fair every year." -BRYAN BLAIR

Bryan Blair did his work and also got the opportunity to say hello to friends from home at the Kentucky State Fair last weekend when Taylor County hosted the opening reception.
Bryan, an Adair Countian and the son of Gayle and the late Fred Blair, was formerly the Sports Information Director at Campbellsville University.
He is an Expositions Administrator in the Sponsorship and Event Marketing Dept at the Kentucky Expo Center and says that most of his responsibilities revolve around acquiring and maintaining relationships with Sponsors of the Kentucky State Fair, National Farm Machinery Show and the North American Livestock Exposition.
He coordinates the Pride of the Counties exhibit and the Little Miss and Mister Kentucky County Fair Pageant and the Kentucky State Fair Cheer and Dance Competition and assists other staff members with various other events.
Working at the Kentucky Exposition Center has been a long held dream. He said, "It's where I've wanted to work since I was a little kid and I'm very fortunate that I get to 'live the dream' of working at the State Fair every year.
He added,"Although the Fair only goes on for 11 days, we start marking floors and laying things out a week and a half prior to opening. There's a lot of long days and nights during fair time but there's never a dull moment, that's for sure and I honestly can say I love my job and what I do."
Linda Waggener, the writer, is Media & Marketing Relations Coordinator at Campbellsville University
