The New York State Fair will be wrapping up another successful year on Monday. Attendance is up from last year, but Saturday's numbers broke the fair's single-day record set 25 years ago.

The new record stands at 120,617 attendees, topping the previous mark of 120,516 set in 1989. Day 10 attendance was up by more than 40,000 from 2013.

Not only was the weather great on Saturday, but the fair hosted country acts Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line as well as the first-ever Miss New York State Fair Pageant and Talent Show.
