PHOENIX (AP) -

Arizona State Fair attendance was up again.

Fair officials say its 2013 attendance of 1,178,515 was up by approximately 24,000 from last year and set a record since the fair switched to a five-day schedule four years ago.

It's also highest in fair history overall.

Fair officials credit mild weather and the 18-day event's attractions.

Tentative dates for the 2014 fair are Oct. 10 to Nov. 2.
