Every year about 1.6 million people will visit the San Diego County Fair, according to organizers. That comes out to about 40,000 visitors a day.
As of Thursday morning, the fair has had 174,530 visitors this year.
"This is the biggest county fair in the country," said Shawn Feist of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. "And the fifth largest fair in the country."
NBC 7 flew a drone over the fairgrounds Thursday to give a rare glimpse into what it looks like from the sky.
