ND State Fair expects record attendance

MINOT, N.D. — Officials say the North Dakota State Fair is on pace to break the attendance record set in 2010.

Marketing director Jennifer Ashley tells the Minot Daily News that attendance through the first three days stands at almost 120,000. That's more than the 2010 pace, a year when a record 308,641 people went through the gates.

Souris River flooding forced the cancellation of last year's event in Minot.

Ashley says she's expecting a lot of pent-up demand from people who missed the fair last year. The fair runs through Saturday.
