This year's Nebraska State Fair has won high marks as a family-friendly event that delivered a positive experience.
The Grand Island Independent reports that nearly 93 percent of fair-goers rated the venue as family-friendly and more than 92 percent said their time at the fair was good or excellent. The reviews were part of a survey presented to the Nebraska State Fair board.
Attendance at the fair reached nearly 337,000 this year, an increase of more than one percent from the previous year.
The survey found that nearly 65 percent of visitors who attended the 2011 fair believed this year's event was much better. This year's fair in late August and early September marked the third year it has been held in Grand Island after being moved from Lincoln.
