ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Attendance at the New Mexico State Fair was down and so was revenue.
    
Unaudited figures provided by Expo New Mexico's chief financial officer indicate that revenues totaled $4.7 million during the Sept. 1-22 fair.
    
According to the Albuquerque Journal, that compares with $5.2 million during the 2012 fair.
    
Year-to-year attendance dropped 4 percent.
    
Fair manager Dan Mourning says the 2013 fair was hampered by record rainfall during the beginning of the 12-day run.
