"Why, this is the third building I've had and who knows, it may not be the last!" David and Marie Hlay, Fair concessionaires since 1956, agree. "This Fair has gotten bigger every year. It sure isn't the same as it used tobe," Hlay says. "In 1956, I used to have an ice cream truck here and I sold ice cream out of the back. It just wasn't big enough though. So we finally built this place, Trudy's Dairy World, and we're proud of it." Myles and Hlay have been friends for years, along with many of the other concessionaires in the area.
