    GOSHEN — Almost 270,000 people attended the 2014 Elkhart County 4-H Fair.

    Ticket-takers counted 269,064 visitors during fair week this year. 

    That’s slightly less than last year’s attendance total of 280,175, but still the second-highest attendance in the last six years.

    The fair board uses a manual counting system. Volunteers at each entrance gate count incoming visitors daily.

    The 2014 fair week broke records for auction sales and food sales. The 4-H members raised $1,160,342.28 this year at the 4-H livestock auctions.
