PHOENIX — More than a million visitors went to the recently concluded Arizona State Fair, but attendance was slightly down from last year.

Fair officials said 1.1 million fun-seekers ambled through the grounds at McDowell Road and 19th Avenue during the 18-day run. A couple even got married on closing day.

The fair got off to shaky start when more than two dozen teenagers got into a brawl on opening night.

About 30 youths were detained on the grounds after the fighting.

The fair ended Sunday. Early plans are to kick off next year’s fair Oct. 9.

We want to hear from you.
