State Fair Attendance Increases 40 Percent


FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP)- Forty percent more people attended the State Fair of Virginia this year.

Virginia Farm Bureau Federation spokesman Greg Hicks says the 10-day fair attracted 229,000 people, up from 160,000 a year ago.

Hicks attributed the increase to better promotion, word-of-mouth and good weather. It didn't rain the entire time.

This is the first year that the fair was run completely by the Farm Bureau Federation.
