DES MOINES, Iowa — The 2014 Iowa State Fair is in the books and now crews are working to clean up the fairgrounds and dismantle many of its attractions.

The food stands, the rides and all the trash is being clean up Monday.

Alberta Finley owns four food stands. She says it it’ll take her two days to tear them all down.

“Setting up is more fun yes, tearing down is a dirty job,” says Finley.

Most of the stands will go into storage until next year’s state fair.

There were over 99,000 people who attended the last day of the fair. That brought the total fair attendance for 2014 to 1,015,092. That’s down 32,136 attendees from the 2013 fair.

The record attendance was set in 2008, when 1,109,150 people visited the Iowa State Fair.
