Should the Red Bluff fair switch back to summer?

The Tehama District Fair is polling vendors and fairgoers to see if they want the fair to return to the summer -- perhaps the second weekend in July -- after 15 years of operating in September.

The fair board is considering the move at the behest of Lynn Strom, the county's 4-H coordinator, who could list any number of reasons she thinks it would be a positive move. For one thing, the fall fair competes with schools' fall sports, including Friday night Red Bluff High School football games, she told me this morning.

For my story on the potential move and the larger issue of what happens when fairs switch dates, check CapitalPress.com soon.
