The Minnesota State Fair saw the most visitors so far for the 2021 event on Sunday. 

According to the fair, 149,247 people visited the State Fairgrounds Sunday, breaking the previous day's record for this year. However, fair attendance still remained below average in comparison to previous years. 

Inclement weather and concerns over a lack of COVID-19 precautions have cast a shadow over state fair attendance this year.
