Officials say the 2016 Nebraska State Fair attracted 2.5 percent more people than a year ago.

The attendance of 361,107 over the fair’s 11-day run is a record for the Grand Island version of the state fair, which moved to the city’s Fonner Park in 2010 from its home in Lincoln.

This year’s biggest crowd turned up on the Labor Day holiday Monday: 56,280.
