SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 2017 attendance at New York state fairgrounds events was more than 57 percent higher than in 2016.

The Democrat says the fairgrounds hosted 189 privately operated events in 2017. Attendance at non-fair events was estimated at more than 800,000.

The fairgrounds are in the midst of a $133 million upgrade designed to increase year-round business and boost the central New York economy.

Construction is now underway on a 136,000-square-foot Expo Center on the fairgrounds.
