Cooler weather spikes State Fair attendance

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

The cooler weather may have prompted an attendance spike at the State Fair as Sunday reeled in an all-time record of over 236,197 fair-goers.

Sunday's record snapped the old single-day record set in 2010 which tallied 229,000 attendees.

Monday, however, is the final day of the Great Minnesota Get-Together, and a long weekend coupled with cooler temperatures could send attendance numbers soaring even higher.

Monday's count is expected to be released soon.
