Record Attendance At Erie County Fair

Hamburg, NY (WBEN) -- The Erie County Fair, which just wrapped up last evening, shattered its attendance record with this year's edition.

Fair officials tell WBEN News the official attendance number for this year is 1,160,184. This represents a more than 10 percent increase over the previous record, which was set in 2011.

Partial credit for the big number goes to a run of good weather for the 12-day event.

There was no final number yet for the canned food drive, a new feature this year. Fairgoers who donated food at the gates were able to qualify for discounts.
