Tomorrow thru Thursday are the rates for the World Ag Expo in nearby Tulare. Unlike last year’s unseasonably warm weather, this year it looks more typical for early February. We go some soaking rain over the weekend, through the wee hours of Monday morning. Expect temps in the low to mid 50s all week, with chance of showers onWednesday and Thursday.
It will be interesting to see how this affects the crowd. Those that have traveled from around the country and even around the world, filling every available hotel room between Fresno and Bakersfield, will make the most of their time. But I wonder if the local attendence that I noticed last year will take a dive?
With probaly half the vendors and 2/3 of the show space outdoors and the rest in large barn-like pavilions, dressing properly to be able to see the entire show without overheating inside or chilling outside is going to be no mean feat.
Regardless, I suggest wearing boots or footwear and pants you don’t mind getting muddy at the very least, bring a light jacket, dress in layers if you can, and bring some sort of hat (John Deere baseball cap if you have one!) to keep the noggin warm and dry.
