2010 Miss. state fair sets record

JACKSON — The 2010 Mississippi State Fair set an attendance record of 673,098, about 10,000 more than the former record set in 2005.

The fair ended Sunday.

Fair director Billy Orr tells The Clarion-Ledger that while numbers aren’t final, ticket sales netted around $3 million.

Orr says good weather contributed to the attendance.

Rain slowed attendance at last year’s fair and organizers extended the event an extra day in an effort to boost business.

The previous record for total attendance was 663,816 in 2005.
