State Fair May Set Attendance Record
This year’s Minnesota State Fair could be a record-breaker. The final, overall attendance for the 12-day run hasn’t been tabulated yet, but Fair officials say it’s possible it could surpass the all-time record set last year of nearly 1-point-8 million. Three daily attendance records have been set. Fair officials say the weather is always a factor…this year started with high heat and humidity, followed by a chill for a few days and a little rain, and ending on a nice, mild fall-like note.
