State Fair Attendance Up This Year

State Fair officials say attendance for the first four days of this year's fair has been higher than the same period last year.

Officials say daily attendance from Friday to Monday was 316,628, a 7 percent increase compared to the first four days in 2006.

Attendance on Tuesday was 69,829, surpassing the previous record of 67,388 set in 1987.

Officials say the numbers reflect advanced admission ticket sales and daily admissions.
