COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Organizers believe the struggling economy could mean another year for big attendance at the Ohio State Fair.


Ted Strickland opens the 156th annual fair Wednesday at the fairgrounds in Columbus.

This year's 12-day festival has been advertised as an affordable destination for families looking for an inexpensive "staycation" close to home.

The fair has made discount coupons available on its Web site and has several special deals, including $3 admission until 3 p.m.

on opening day.

Amid similar economic conditions last year, the fair broke a record for Saturday attendance, and ticket sales were up 11 percent from 2007.

This year's traditional butter sculpture at the fair depicts three generations of dairy farmers caring for a cow and calf.
