Attendance count for fair

The official attendance count for the 2013 St. Joseph County Grange Fair was 140,547 patrons.

The numbers, released Monday by fair director Bill Johnson, were just a few hundred shy of the 2012 attendance figure.

Johnson said weather played a role in attendance not only at the grandstand and its nightly entertainment, but the fair overall.

He said Saturday’s ideal conditions drew a number of walk-up sales for the Josh Turner concert.
