It’s official! More Minnesotans (and MN lovers) turned out to the State Fair on Labor Day Monday than ever before.
According to the MN State Fair bean counters, total Labor Day attendance peaked at 178,867 people. Holy cow… on a stick!
The cumulative attendance total for the run of the fair wasn’t a record breaker, but a banner turnout nonetheless at 1,779,738.
It’s hard to believe the fair is already finished and that we’ll have to wait another full year for a hot pile of cheese curds.
