Altamont Fair wraps up

There were many rides featured at the fair, including the Tornado, the Avalanche, the Starship and the Super Himalaya.

In addition to the rides there were a number of games and opportunities to win prizes, like the cork gun gallery.

"Everyone's a winner here," said Debbie Rutt, who has run the gallery for three years.

She said, though, she has not gotten as many participants because a lot of the kids are there primarily for the rides.

While patrons enjoyed the attractions at the fair, some of the vendors were slightly disappointed with the turnout.

Tom Kurish of Adirondack Sun Rooms has been vending at the Altamont fair for six years, and he said he has had success in the past, but this year he was hoping for more patrons.

He said he also wanted to see more vendors and more exciting attractions as well.

"It was successful [the first four years], up until last year, and this year," Kurish said.
