The New York State Fair signals an end to summer more than the start of the fall. The attendance for this year’s Fair was 965,147, including a single day record on Labor Day of 122, 870.  We will miss those bright, warm and mostly sunny days at one of our region’s best tourist attractions.

Here are some photographs to savor until next year’s edition.
