Fair seeing record high attendance


Fair officials say it's been a successful week at the Elkhart County Fair.

Perfect weather, big acts, and all the regular attractions contributed to making this a record breaking year. Usually the fair sees 225,000 over nine days and as of Thursday morning, 180,000 people have gone through the gates.

Monday and Wednesday were the busiest days of the week, breaking attendance records.

"We've had some really really great days out here for attendance. The weather has corporated with us since Friday and so we've had a lot of people come out here for the fair," says Fair Board Representative, Monica Gould.

The next couple days are expected to be busy too as people make their last chance visits before Saturday's final day.
