State fair officials say the numbers of people attending this year are down from last year’s attendance figures, but they’re still optimistic the number of people going to the fair will at least match last year’s figures. Kim Allen, marketing director for the fair, says about 185,000 people went to the fair in the first five days, down from more than 190,000 a year ago. Daily attendance figures are not being provided this year. Allen hopes big concert draws and good weather this weekend will push total attendance figures near last year’s numbers of 360,000 people.
