|Virginia State Fair from god's seat|
Mark Lovell, who heads a fair group out of Tennessee (Universal Fairs) bought the Meadow Event Park, where the Virginia fair has been held recently, for $5.67 million and the paper says he has an offer of $10 million for it. The fair is more than a century old.
The T-D quoted him as saying,"We have been approached by a group to buy it. They made us an offer and we countered back. If they accept, we'll take it. If they don't, then they don't. It was not our intent to sell."
Lovell bought 331 acres of The Meadow Event Park as well as the State Fair of Virginia's trademark, name and Web presence.
