The 64th annual Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo drew more than 120,000 people to the five-day event, according to fair officials.
Attendance was up 10 percent over the previous year. Food sales were higher as well, and the carnival hit record sales of all-day ride wristbands.
A fundraiser for Second Harvest resulted in 9,310 pounds of food donated by the fair.
The market stock sale -- where 4-H and FFA members sell their animals -- raised $718,913 for the young exhibitors. The poultry and rabbit auction yielded another $25,000 for the entrants. One young exhibitor raised $6,500 for the Tri-Cities Cancer Center through the sale of her rabbit.
Never miss a local story.
CM Smoke of Basin City took top prize in the BBQ Cook-Off, winning $500, a new Louisiana BBQ and half a beef.
More than 11,834 entries were brought to the fair, showcasing everything from vegetables to animals to crafts.
