In 2005, the New Mexico State Fair Commission was faced with a difficult decision. It seems that many people had begun to complain that the annual fall exposition had become to long and cumbersome.
The commission decided to go into special session to discuss how they might cut some of the days out of the 17-day event.
After a day long session, they had a solution — they decided to add an extra day to the event and make it run for a marathon 18 days.
Which just goes to show — well, I don’t know what.
