The Delaware State Fair got underway yesterday to some good weather in Harrington.

Last year's attendance came in at 239-thousand people. 

That's down from 260-thousand in 2012.

WBOC reports that organizers believe that the numbers should be better this year because of a stronger entertainment lineup that includes country stars like Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.

In addition, last year Delmarva was in the midst of a heat wave.

Also expect some Delaware brewers to show up like Dogfish Head and Fordham Brewing companies as well as local wineries.

Among the new features this year is a new beer and wine garden called The Roost and a smartphone app that can be used to buy tickets, make schedules and save money with coupons.

The fair runs through July 26th.
