The Minnesota State Fair broke its attendance record this year but fell just a bit short of hitting the 2 million people mark.

The official attendance for the 2017 Minnesota State Fair was 1,997,320, that broke the previous year's record of 1,943,719. Some were speculating that this could be the year that attendance breaks the 2 million mark, I guess that will come next year.
