HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas State Fair recorded its third highest attendance ever this year.

General Manager Susan Sankey said 359,808 people visited the 10-day fair, the third highest number in the event’s 104-year history.

The Hutchinson News reports (https://bit.ly/2e4YN6h ) that 2015 was a record-breaking year for fair attendance with 369,322 visitors, beating the previous record set in 1995 at 361,647.

Sankey says those years had near-perfect weather but this year’s fair had some rain.

A final fair budget is expected to be ready for the fair’s board on Nov. 2.
