Illinois State Fair Sets New Attendance Record

The 1999 Illinois State Fair broke attendance records for the 10 day event with over one million fairgoers enjoying beautiful weather and several new attractions. The Illinois State Water Survey provided attendees with educational exhibits that included a 100 square foot elevation model of the Illinois River basin as a part of the Department of Natural Resources Tech Town 2000 presentation. Young fairgoers particularly enjoyed a seven foot tall map of Illinois that asked the question, "What Is Your Watershed Address?" Educational material that ranged from acid rain to unusual weather phenomena was also provided at the Water Survey's exhibit in Conservation World.
