The Northern Wisconsin State Fair is seeing a drop in attendance for the second year in the row because of the weather. Pinky lee, manager of the fair, says about 70,000 people usually attend the event, but only about 30,000 have so far. The fair wraps up Sunday July 16. For fair-workers, they say the heat isn't getting to them.
It's not too bad. I've seen it worse. At least there's a breeze moving, if the breeze is moving, you can tolerate it,” said Richard Estremfuller, a worker at the fair.
Lee says he's not letting the drop bring him down.
