The Erie County Fair concluded its 12-day run in Hamburg Sunday. Officials announce the final attendance was 1,172,635. This just falls shy of the record set in 2014 of 1,220,101 guests.
For the 1 million-plus guests who came through the gates, organizers said, a fair cannot only be measured in people, but in vendors, exhibits and, most importantly, memories.
"On behalf of all of the Erie County Fair's directors, staff and volunteers, thank you WNY for your continued support," they said.
The 2016 Erie County Fair is slated for Aug. 10-21.
