Oklahoma State Fair organizers are hoping for a hot finish this weekend after a slow start. 

Heavy rains the first two days hampered the 106th annual Oklahoma State Fair. But with food attractions like the Burger Chili Shack's Juicy Lucy hamburger, Fair Spokesman Scott Munz says he expects the Fair to rally through its final weekend. 

"There are economical ways to come for just the price of admission," Munz said. 

Last year, the Fair attracted 900,000 visitors, who the OKC Chamber of Commerce spent $96 million.
