DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Organizers of the Dubuque County Fair say attendance is up this year. 

During the last day at the fair, there's just about something for everyone to enjoy -- from awesome rides to yummy food. 

"We've had a really great fair, fortunately we've had great weather.  We've got all of our events in, which is a great thing for us.  Attendance has been good everyday," said General Manager Jamie Blum.

Organizers changed up a few things from past years to increase attendance. This year, they're expecting to surpass the goal of 60,000 visitors.

The last day of the fair usually draws out the largest crowds. One of the events to help do that is demolition derby.

Another big event was Saturday night's Jason Derulo concert. Organizers are still counting figures, but say between 5,000 to 6,000 tickets were sold.

Sunday's visitors say they appreciate the new efforts made by the fair.

"I like all those efforts, said Cinda Welu. "I know a lot of friends work so hard to make the Dubuque County Fair as successful as it is."
