MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A record number of people attended this year's North Dakota State Fair, which ended on Saturday.

Fair Manager Bob Wagoner says 296,919 people attended, breaking the record of 260,041 set in 1995.

Now that the fair is over, contractors will begin tearing down the aging grandstand. State lawmakers earlier this year authorized $15 million for a new 7,000-seat grandstand that should be ready next year.
