For the fourth straight year, attendance at the Wisconsin State Fair topped one million visitors.
Officials with the fair, which wrapped up on Sunday, say 1,015,815 people passed through the gates this year to enjoy such offerings as concerts, rides, and food. Over the course of the expo’s 10 day run, 315,000 of the fair’s legendary cream puffs and 660,000 pounds of ice cream were served.
The State Fair highlighted the agricultural accomplishments of Wisconsin’s young people. During the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction, the 25 animals for sale raised $322,000.
