Kansas State Fair Wraps Up Annual Run in Hutchinson

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas State Fair has wrapped up its annual 10-day run in Hutchinson. The Hutchinson News reports that taken as a whole, the grandstand events through Saturday were in the black. Fair's interim General Manager Lori Hart says the Sam Hunt show was the most popular, with about 7,700 tickets sold. Hart said it was the most tickets sold for a concert since Toby Keith performed in 2013. She says a popular new addition this year was a beard and mustache contest. The youth livestock exhibits put up record numbers this year. Between cattle, swine, sheep and goats, more than 1,600 livestock were shown at the fair. Because bird flu concerns meant 4-H exhibitors couldn't show live poultry, they instead used posters, videos and demonstrations to educate the public.
