2018 Indiana State Fair draws more than 860,000

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indiana State Fair ended Sunday, and attendance numbers were mixed. 

Overall, the numbers were down this year. 

Over its 17-day run, the fair drew more than 860,000 people. That’s a drop of 40,000 from last year. 

However, organizers said, they have one new record to celebrate. More than 91,000 people went to the second $2 Tuesday — featuring a $2 entry and $2 food selections — making it the best-attended weekday ever at the fair.

Also, a stretch of good weather in the middle of the fair led to the second-highest attended five-day stretch in fair history.
