ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — It’s the final day of the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque.
The 73rd annual fair opened Sept. 9 and organizers expected about 600,000 people to visit the fairgrounds during the 17-day run.
But vendors say some rainy weather and the weak economy have hurt sales this year and kept the crowds lower than in past years.
Fair officials say all-day ride passes are $20 for Sunday’s final day. They say the ride passes at their lowest prices since 2001.
Organizers also say that hundreds of fair vendors historically offer “Final Day Blowouts” on food and thousands of other items.
