ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - It was cloudy and rainy Friday and Saturday night, two big nights for the State Fair, but officials say attendance was still strong.
The skies opened up Wednesday, the opening day of the fair and the rain kept falling through the weekend.
The food vendor area flooded and water flowed on the streets, but that didn't keep people away.
It even rained during the State Fair parade Saturday, though hundreds of people still showed up to enjoy it.
"We actually haven't had that much rain here on the grounds,” said Michael Henningsen, State Fair media director. “And the rain we've had had has either been late at night or early in the morning so it hasn't had much of an effect."
Henningsen says he even expects this year's fair attendance will be better than last year.
He adds Tuesday is a great day to go because admission and ride wristbands will be half price.
