Attendance at this year's Georgia National Fair was the third-best ever.

 

That's according to a news release, which says 439,931 attended the 22nd annual fair in Perry.

 

That's despite four partial days of rain.

 

The news release says the 2011 version of the state-run fair set several records:

 

 

  • Best Sneak-a-Peek attendance (Oct. 6).
  • Best First Friday attendance (Oct. 7).
  • Best First Saturday attendance (Oct. 8).
  • Second Best Second Saturday (Oct. 15).
  • Second Best Second Sunday (Oct. 16).

The Oct. 8 sold-out Blake Shelton concert helped boost attendance.

 

Next year's fair dates: Oct. 4-14, 2012.
