2 Attendance Records Set at State Fair
It's the final day of the Minnesota State Fair, and so far two attendance records have been set. Over 133,000 went through the turnstiles last Tuesday, a record for the fair's 6th day. And over a quarter of a million people went through the gates this past Saturday, also setting a record. The fair's all-time attendance record was set in 2009, when nearly 1.8 million people attended. As of this past Saturday, the fair's attendance this year was close to 1.5 million.
