WEST ALLIS (WKOW) -- Another year is in the books for the Wisconsin State Fair, with a boost in attendance and food sales.
Fair officials say they've beaten last year's attendance numbers, when 921,000 people came to the State Fair grounds in West Allis.
"We've had such a nice, steady crowd every single day, even on your Monday and Tuesday," says communications manager Kristi Chuckel.
Vendors say their food stands are seeing record-breaking sales too. The New Berlin Lions Club corn stand sold 15,000 ears of corn Saturday alone. The booth is on track to sell more than $100,000 for the whole State Fair stretch.
"That's the most we sold in one day since we went to the roaster," says club president Jerry Johnson. "We think we'll have about $150 thousand we'll be donating to charity."
The final day of State Fair was also veterans and military recognition day. Veterans got free admission and celebrated with a parade.
