08/22/2013
Illinois officials say this year's State Fair had the highest attendance levels in more than a decade.
The governor's office says more than 961,000 people attended the fair during its 11 day run this month. That's up almost five percent from last year and the highest since 2002 when 1.2 million people went through the fair's gates.
Ticket sales for concerts at the fair's grandstand topped $2 million. Those sales are actually up nearly 30 percent from last year setting a new record.
The fair ended this past Sunday.
