Overall Attendance at State Fair Up Slightly Over Last Year
Total attendance for this year's State Fair was up slightly from 2012, but was still the second-lowest in the past 10 years.

Fair officials said the final tally for all 12 days was 851,157. That's up 5,562 from last year, or about six-tenths of 1 percent.
 
The fair opened Aug. 22, and the gates closed at 9 p.m. today.
 
The all-time record for fair attendance was 2001, when 1,011,248 people came through the gates.
 
The fair did set one record this year, though: most $1 baked potatoes sold. This year, 54,587 potatoes were sold in the Horticulture Building. The previous record was 50,966.
 
That translated into one potato every 10 seconds, according to a fair news release.
