My understand is that the Show is getting smaller, from two buildings down to one. This would be one reason, the other is probably a county superbisor named Zeb.
The let there biggest money maker (made more than all the other shows combined) besides the September Fair season, get banned. Now the people that are running the concession are strugeling to keep it afloat. It would not suprise me if in the next five years the property is sold for development.

My guess is that they did not want to pay the fair grounds for the
extra day. But there is now way that they could get as many people
through in one day.

Personally cancelling Sundays pissed me off, as Lots of times I have
stuff to do on Saturday.
