The 2012 Colorado State Fair ended its 11-day run with lower attendance than 2011.
Attendance decreased this year with 474,915 attending the event, which is 41,080 lower than 2011.
State Fair General Manager, Chris Wiseman, says a number of factors may have contributed to a lower attendance including local school events and the economy.
A profit/loss report is currently being figured and those numbers should be available in November. Results from the State Fair competitions continue to be posted at www.coloradostatefair.com.
