Gates closed at 11 p.m. Sunday night.

Thousands came out to enjoy all of the food and attractions on its final day.

Final attendance numbers won't be known until later this week, but fair organizers say Saturday's crowd broke a record.

So many people showed up that Fresno police reportedly considered closing the gates early.

Sunday's crowd was big too, as people came one last time to experience fair favorites.

The fair says 34-thousand pounds of flour wereused to make those cinnamon rolls this year, as well as 12 thousand pounds of cinnamon and sugar and more than five thousand pounds of cream cheese.
