The 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.
