Raleigh, N.C. — After a slow start in its first weekend, the North Carolina State Fair saw attendance soar Monday and Tuesday under sunny skies.
On each day, more than 75,000 people came through the gates, a significant increase the same period last year.
The temperature in Raleigh reached 81 degrees Monday afternoon. Highs in the 80s and clear skies are forecast through Thursday.
