ELKHART COUNTY The Elkhart County Fair is over, and even before the official attendance numbers come in, fair officials say it was a record year.
The Elkhart Truth reports that 251,000 people had already visited the fair before Saturday. That number puts the fair on track for the top 3 attended fairs in the history of Elkhart County.
Such high attendance meant lots of traffic problems this year, with many spending hours waiting in their cars. Fair officials say they're developing plans for a new access road to County Road 36.
