WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: State Fair had its highest attendance since 1969
The Wisconsin State Fair had its highest attendance since 1969. Fair officials said yesterday that almost one-million 31-thousand people walked through the turnstiles in West Allis between July 31st and last Sunday. That's one-percent more than last year -- which was the first time in 44 years that the state fair attracted over a million customers. Good entertainment, good exhibits, and good weather are a fair's best friends.
