Attendance at the Delaware State fair was up more than 25 percent this year.
WDEL-AM reports nearly 282,000 people attended the fair over its 10-day run.
General Manager Bill DiMondi says the fair in Harrington got a boost from almost ideal weather conditions on most of the days and nights.
Two of the headline concerts were sold out, and one was a near-sellout.
The midway carnival grossed more than $1 million. That’s up 18 percent from 2013.
