I'm an Arizona dealer just returned from a buying trip to the Brimfield show - my first time. I have attended fairs like this all over the world and I was extremely disappointed in this one! So you had some showers - I came ready for rain but the dealers wimped out almost immediately on Tuesday - my spouse and I paid $10 to enter Brimfield North and after about 10 minutes all the dealers packed up and left on account of a few showers!! You had some nerve in taking my money and then closing down - On Thursday May's just plain never opened ("Rain or Shine"?!!). In addition I cant believe that after all the years this has been going on you in Brimfield have not established an off area parking garage with shuttles and a system of restrooms!!!!! The porta potties were disgusting, demeaning and just plain awful. After all of the revenue this brings to your town the least you could do would be to provide basic services like off area parking, shuttle and decent restrooms. Where does all your profit go? Who collects taxes on all this activity? I couldnt even get a receipt out of any of the ticket takers. It all seemed very suspicious and shady to me. Needless to say I will never make the mistake of returning to Brimfield nor will anyone I know if I can help it.

I didn't notice many dealers leaving, but heard many that were planning on packing and leaving before the weekend rain.

But about the portapotties you're right, they were pretty awful and definetely should be improved.

Parking wasn't that bad after all. But it hadn't been raining enough to make it messy yet.
