We've been getting totals back from various departments, providing insight to the amount of food guests consumed, how much toilet paper was used, how many rode Pierce Transit's "Fair Express" and other nifty little facts from the 2009 Puyallup Fair.
Let me tell you this: You don't want to know the calorie count on scones. Especially when a grand total of (drumroll, please...) 1,205,270 were purchased. Now that is a lot of scones - more than one for every person that attended. It is also a lot of calories. Thank heavens they vanish when the scones are put in the bags!
So you were wondering about toilet paper, weren't you? A total of 6,986,000 feet of TP was flushed. On the "save the environment" front (and parking hassles), 96,629 rode on Pierce Transit's busses from various park and ride locations. Kudos to all who took the bus!
