The South Texas State Fair has already broken a record and there are still seven days to go.

Chris Colletti with the Young Men’s Business League tells KFDM News yesterday’s attendance set a record for the first Sunday of any South Texas State Fair.

The YMBL is still calculating the numbers but Colletti says Saturday’s attendance was also impressive.

Rain on Thursday and Friday cut down on attendance and Colletti says they’re still playing catch up, but he says the YMBL is gaining ground.

The gates open today through Friday at 5 p.m., Saturday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m.

KFDM News will have live reports tonight at 5 and 6.

Volunteers are getting ready to put together the pieces of the South Texas State Fair.

The fair begins Thursday, March 26 and runs through April 5 at Ford Park.

The YMBL board voted to move the fair to March after Hurricane Ike prevented the event from taking place in its usual time period in October

Truck drivers are bringing in some of the rides for the Bill Hames Midway and organizers expect hundreds of thousands of visitors.

YMBL Fair Chairman Donnie Warner tells KFDM News volunteers will be busy this week. Vendors begin checking in Sunday and volunteers will work throughout the day to prepare the fairgrounds.
