Rainy weather for several days sapped some of the attendance out of this year’s Kentucky State Fair.  The 110th edition of the fair wrapped up this past Sunday.  It drew just under 516 thousand visitors.  The count fell below 600 thousand for the first time since 2012.  Rain fell on eight of the eleven days of the state fair.  Despite the decrease in attendance, other areas saw growth including the competitive entry departments and the World’s Championship Horse Show.
