The state fair logged its highest attendance in over a decade, with more than 961-thousand people passing through the gates.  Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick says there are a number of factors that contributed to the great turnout.

Bliefnick comments

Fair-goers dished out more than four-million dollars on the corn dogs, lemon shake-ups, and other little trinkets at the state fair this year.  Grandstand ticket sales brought in just over two-million bucks, thanks to musical acts Toby Keith, Styx and REO Speedwagon.
