It could be a record-breaking year at the Minnesota State Fair. The Star Tribune reports vendors are optimistic that attendance will reach record levels set in 2019, despite this weekend’s rainstorms and tornadoes. State Fair officials say attendance is approaching but not surpassing the all-time record. Last year, one-point-three million people came to The Great Minnesota Get Together, marking the lowest attendance in 44 years.
