DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Final numbers are in for attendance for the 2011 Iowa State Fair.

1.08 million people saw the butter cow, rode rides, and sampled food on a stick. That's less than the record attendance of 1.1 million visitors in 2008.

Officials say good weather was likely part of the success of the fair this year.
