If you were at the Minnesota State Fair on Friday and it seemed extra crowded, that's because it was. 

The State Fair tweeted out Saturday that it set a new attendance record for the second Friday of the fair. 

According to the tweet, 187,066 people turned out. That breaks last year's record of 182,926 people. 

The fair also set an attendance record on Monday.

The second Saturday of the fair tends to be the busiest day of all. But we'll probably have to wait until Sunday to find out if it breaks last year's record of 260,374 people.
