PHOENIX -- The three-week Arizona State Fair wrapped up Sunday at the Arizona State Faigrounds with the best numbers since the recession began.

More than 1.1 million people took in the rides and exhibits this year, 76,000 than last year.

"Not the record but close," said Kristi Walsh with the fair. "We had 1.2 million in 2007. We're moving back in a positive direction."

Walsh said perfect weather in the past few days helped contribute to the boost in attendance.
