The South Carolina State Fair has wrapped up in Columbia. Officials say attendance for the 12-day run of the fair was down roughly 10 percent from last year.
In 2010, a record 492,000 people attended the State Fair. This year, a little more than 442,000 turned out. Officials say four days of rain during the event may have contributed to the decline. Despite the lower attendance, officials say the fair still brought in about $22 million.
The fair was marred by a minor accident on its opening night, when six people were injured by a piece of metal that broke off the Banzai ride and flew into a crowd.
The last night of the fair featured a concert by country music star Trace Atkins.
