Fair neighbors try to cash in on parking

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Big crowds aren't only big business for the fair. Neighbors like to cash in on people looking for a cheaper place to park.

Yakima normally doesn't allow people to park on lawns. But, there is an exception during the fair.

Some neighbors say they're not seeing as many cars so far.
"Everybody's they are usually full, they are usually full. That why they've been telling me, that they've been full. But this year it's been really, really slow. And I don't know I'm trying to figure it out," said Purple Pleasant.

This is the second year Purple Pleasant opened her property for parking. Last year, she says she made almost 45-hundred dollars and expects to make only about a third of that this year.
