JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Final numbers for this year's Mississippi State Fair won't be in until the midway closes Sunday night, but many people think they've got an idea on attendance.

"There's not as many people as there was in previous years, but it's crowded though," agreed Jamie Tucker, another fair frequenter.

That was the general consensus at this year's State Fair: Packed, but not as packed.

"There's a lot of people here, you know. Like I said, I don't know how it was last year, but compared to now, it's full," another fair-goer said.

Some people are happy for the shorter wait time, but others prefer the crowds.

"It's less excitement, but it's still fun not being as crowded," said Demi Washington, who goes to the fair every time it comes to town. "But it's better to have less people because there won't be more lines. I mean, you don't have to wait in the lines that long."

But now those lines are closed, and won't open again till next October.
