I've been to Hershy about 5 times over the last 25 years. Used to go to Pate every year - mostly way back when it was in the pasture. But have been to Pate at the Speedway several times too. I think you'll be disappointed if you are expecting Pate to be anything close to Hershey in scale. Don't get me wrong - Pate is a very good, large regional Swap Meet. Hershey is an international event. Probably more "pros" at Hershey, but don't expect Pate to be a bunch of guys who have cleaned out there barns and threw it in the truck on Saturday morning. Neither is the place for bargains anymore - unless you are lucky. If I had to choose one I'd go to Hershey without a doubt.
