Attendance drops for this year's Indiana State Fair

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Attendance tumbled at this year's Indiana State Fair.

Final numbers show overall attendance plunged by nearly 20 percent from last year.

Fair officials blame the heat and nine days of rain for the drop in attendance.

About 730,000 people went through the gates compared with last year, which had the fifth-largest crowds.

The fair wrapped up Sunday after a 17-day run.
