(Radio Iowa) Numbers released from the Iowa State Fair show this year had the second-best attendance ever.
This year finished with nearly one million-134-thousand people going through the gates as there was good weather right up until the heat wave hit in the last couple of days. The attendance record of one-million-170-thousand was set in 2019. The first Sunday of this year’s Fair on August 13th set an attendance record for that day of nearly 115-thousand. Country star Eric Church’s performance at the grandstand that Sunday night helped out –with near concert record of more than 17-thousand people.
