Everyone has their own plan. What I mean by that is: Do you like to show up 30-40 min before it starts to try to have close parking & be one of the 1st in line OR do you show up about an hour in, so at least they would have opened the doors & everyone's already in? Do you walk all around 1st & see what district or company's there & then go to your favorites or do you just go straight to the ones you want as you see them? Any other comments? I went to a non-teaching fair & showed up about 40 min ahead & the line wrapped all around, but I wasn't as far back in line as I could have been. Then when they opened, they let in about 50 people at a time so it wasn't so crowded in the bldg.
