LINCOLN, Neb.-- Lancaster County Super Fair food, games, and animal shows all ended Saturday, Aug. 9.

10/11 News reported in early August that fair officials believed record breaking numbers will be reached during opening weekend.

Super Fair director, Amy Dickerson told 10/11 News in July that she’s expecting 200,000 visitors over the 10 day fair.

Owner of the Jerky Shack, Dave Ferguson, has been coming to the county fair for three years and said sales have been good. Ferguson said he believes it’s because he’s in a location with a lot of food traffic.

“The beginning of fair was good traffic during the first weekend,” said Ferguson. “It calmed down during the week, and the last week was a good finale.”

Neal Huss helped operate the fair and said that Lincoln Police helped with security during the second half of the fair. There were several fights reported, one person had minor injuries.

In 2012, more than 178,000 people came to the fair. In 2013, it increased my 7.4 percent totaling 192,644 people.

10/11 News has reached out to Amy Dickerson for the final numbers.
