This morning, the Wisconsin State Fair announced the final numbers for its just-completed 2015 run, and for the third straight year, the festival cracked one million in attendance. The reported number is 1,033,053, which tops both 2013 and 2014's attendance numbers.
In addition, the Wisconsin State Fair reported that the Governor's Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction raised $420,000, the Giant Slide saw 121,000 slides, 127,000 pounds of food were donated to Hunger Task Force during Wells Fargo $2 Day and 400,000 cream puffs were scarfed down.
The State Fair will look to top that number next year when it cracks back open from Aug. 4 through Aug. 14.
