BOZEMAN, Mont. -

The gates will close at the Gallatin County Fair in Bozeman Sunday night. Despite the rough start on Wednesday with the weather, people at the fairgrounds told us attendance has been steady ever since.

Fairgrounds manager, Sue Shockley, told us by the time they shut down on Sunday they estimate 50,000 people will have walked through the gates.

"We are traditional, we are family, we are wholesome," said Shockley.

Sue Shockley has been working with the fair for almost 30 years. We asked her what she usually expects as the fair comes to a close.

"The last day is usually lower key," said Shockley.

At the fair, we found there was something new and exciting around every corner. Everyone we spoke to had a different "favorite" part. People said everything from the animals, to the ferris wheel and even the food.

While the gates will close Sunday evening, Shockley tells us they are already looking forward to next year.

"Within a couple of days after the fair we are going next year we are going to do, next year lets do this better. We are already planning," said Shockley.
