Record attendance for Illinois State Fair

It was record attendance at the Illinois State Fair this year.


The Illinois Department of Agriculture says that more than 636,700 visitors attended over the 11 days in Springfield. Agriculture Director Jerry Costello says that great weather certainly helped push fair attendance higher. He notes the Department of Ag took the counting seriously.



The IDOA says the fair was a financial success too, with estimated revenue topping $6.4 million.
