59,324 souls flock to Ohio State Fair on opening day, breaking attendance record set in 2013


COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Fair had a record-breaking opening day.

The first day of the annual event on Wednesday drew 59,324 attendees to the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus. That beat the old record, set in 2013, by more than 400 people.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) was on hand Wednesday for the opening, and attendance was helped along by good weather and a sold-out concert by country star Reba McEntire.

The fair runs through Aug. 9.
