Illinois State Fairgrounds Repairs Complete

SPRINGFIELD, IL–It is official. Repair of the electrical problems that have plagued the fairgrounds since the end of January are complete, three weeks early. The Illinois Department of Agriculture, the Capital Development Board and B & B Electrical’s hard work paid off. Springfield’s B & B Electrical was required to work double shifts until the repairs were complete. All that’s left to be done is some cleanup work that will only continue for a few more days. Non-fair events will resume on May 17. Judy Kjellander, Midwest Charity show manager and president added, “we appreciate all the hard work that was done on behalf of our historic show piece that is the Illinois State Fairgrounds. As planned we are looking forward to once again hosting the Midwest Charity Horse Show June 17-21, 2008.”
