It's been a fun week at the Rock Island County Fair. On Saturday, it officially wrapped up.
 
Families got to enjoy carnival rides, livestock competitions, displays and of course, plenty of funnel cake! Every year, the fair draws crowds from across the Quad Cities and beyond. Organizers say attendance started off slow, but built up by the last day.
 
This year's fair was filled some new additions, and some long-time favorites.
 
A livestock exhibitor, Matt Foster said, "It's got something for every kid, it goes from rabbits to chickens. We got a nice petting zoo for the kids that aren't familiar with the animals. "
 
This was 147th year for the fair.
