Hey Minnesota, you really loved the State Fair this year.
State Fair officials on Tuesday said the 2018 Great Minnesota Get-Together was the best attended, with the turnstiles rolling over more than 2 million times for the first time in the fair's history.
Fair attendance beat out what was the prior record of 1,997,320 logged last year. On Saturday, the fair recorded its all-time single-day attendance record, 270,426.
