If you want to be that specific, then i would suggest contacting the fair office, thats probably the only way you will get a reliable number.

It is important since Strates only pays the $6.50 per head on the Paid attendance. That means this year's paid attendance figures are more important than any previous year in the fair's history I would think. If I were the fair or the show, I would want an independent nonpartisan (if there is such a person in the state of NC now!) to chart those figures.

Look at this...so far, according to that chart, 555,303 people have gone to the NC State Fair. If the final three days this weekend AVERAGE what they have over the past 15 years, there will have been 812,133 people thru the gates. That would be second only to the 2000 fair in attendance.

At 6.50 per head, Strates would shell out $5,278,864.50!!!!!!!!!!! What has the previous gross been at Raleigh for carnivals? Anyone know?

I remember reading somewhere (Maybe the News Observer??)that Big A paid something like $2.4 million off of $4.2 million. Lemme do some research on it but I believe it was in the News Observer though....

It is about 85% paid of the total from what I understand.

They only need a paid gate of 83,000 Sunday to have the best attendence ever. They surpased last years attendence around noon today.
