DEL MAR (CBS 8) - After 24 days of fun in the sun, the San Diego County Fair has powered down following another successful run.

Fair organizers say this year's theme, "Game On," was a huge hit that touched all generations, drawing the second-highest attendance ever at 1.4 million people.

The fair's best day was Thursday, drawing more than 93,000 during the holiday.

As for some of the unique food items, more than 17,000 bacon-wrapped pickles were sold, 15,000 Krispy Kreme sloppy Joes, and around 10,000 waffle dogs.
