is highest ever for
If you attended the Stock Show on Saturday and thought it was a little crowded, you were right.
The attendance for Saturday, 138,300, was the highest recorded for the second Saturday of the event in its 117-year history.
And that figure is the third-highest for any day, with only the third Saturdays of 2011 and 2012 surpassing it.
The total attendance for the 2013 Stock Show stood at 370,400 through Saturday. That's 3,700 more visitors than the total for the same point in 2012.
And in 2012, the Stock Show set a total attendance record of 1,166,000. -- Punch Shaw
