Crews clean up after annual Shiprock Fair
The Navajo Nation sent out crews to clean up after the 96th annual Shiprock Navajo Fair.

This year's event attracted about 100,000 people to Shiprock, New Mexico. Attendees left a lot behind, mainly along the parade route.

"People pack things in and they don't pack them back out," Herb Beyale of the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority told The Farmington Daily Times. "You've got to worry about the impression we're making on first-time visitors who drive through during the weekend of the fair."

The fair is the oldest of its kind on the Navajo Nation.
