PERRY -- Even with rain affecting four out of 10 days, the 22nd Georgia National Fair still posted record numbers.
This year’s fair, which ended Sunday, was the third-largest with 439,931 people attending, according to a Monday news release from Michele Treptow, director of communications for the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter.
Sneak-a-Peek day, Oct. 6, had its best attendance thus far. Oct. 7 was the best first Friday, and Oct. 8 was the best first Saturday for attendance.
The fair also experienced a sell-out concert Oct. 8 with country music star Blake Shelton.
The second weekend proved second-best Saturday and Sunday attendance.
Throughout the 10 days, more than 10,000 children attended the fair on school field trips, according to Treptow.
Revenue numbers will not be available until the next meeting of the Georgia Agricultural Exposition Authority in November.
Next year’s fair will be Oct. 4-14, 2012.Read more:
