FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - Despite ending with two record setting days, attendance at the Minnesota State Fair this year was down from 2012.
57,350 fewer people went to the Great Minnesota Get Together.
Fair officials say attendance this year was 1,731,162. That's less than last year's total of 1,788,512.
This year's attendance is the lowest since 2008.
A heat wave last week prompted many people to stay home.
