Fair crowd nears 100K on third day

New York State Fair

GEDDES, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The weather was picture perfect on Friday, and apparently, fair-goers agreed. A total of 98,238 came through the games. That’s up 782 from a year ago, which narrow the year-over-year gap to 7.898. The crowds came out to celebrate Pride Day and New Americans Day.

An estimated 17,600 people came out to see Lindsay Stirling at Chevy Court on Friday night.

FUN FACT: Through three days, the Fair has attracted 249,507 people. If that was the attendance figure for the entire fair, it would still outrank 28 fairs since 1906.
