2013 Iowa State Fair Tops 1 Million Visitors

DES MOINES (AP) -- More than 1 million visitors attended the Iowa State Fair during its 11-day run that ended Sunday, but the number was a little smaller than last year.
  
The fair reported Monday that 1,047,246 people attended the event this year.
  
That's nearly 50,000 less than last year's attendance.
  
The fair's top attendance day was Saturday, Aug. 17, when 112,534 made it to the sprawling fairgrounds in east Des Moines.
  
The fair is Iowa's largest event and ranks among the top state fairs in attendance across the country.
