Lookit 'em all. On this day, there were 171,633 people in attendance at the Fair. The total for the whole ten days of the fair was 1,693,533. I know it looks scary, but really it's very friendly. I mean, it's Minnesota. People are polite. Mostly. This is actually the only crowd event I can tolerate, and even like. I hate the 4th of July, and just in general get really irritable and have to leave when I'm in a large crowd. Claustropeopleia? I dunno, I just want them all to go away. And yet, the fair is the one exception.
