More than 1,000 eager job-seekers crowded the Fresno Fairground Thursday to apply for 500 positions available during this year’s Big Fresno Fair.
The annual event runs Oct. 5-16 and needs a small army of workers to make it happen. Applicants on Thursday applied for jobs such as parking attendants, ticket sellers, maintenance crew, horse racing staff, security guards, concessions workers and museum docents.
It was the sixth annual hiring event offered by the Big Fresno Fair.
