I jumped on the fair's website first thing this morning and found that from 10AM - 11AM admission was free as were the mid-way rides. That saved our family over $60.
The kids love the fair ...
we enjoyed rides,
and trying out a TempurPedic Bed. The the last part was not exactly on our list of things we were looking forward to seeing at the fair but, my husband and I have been talking about getting one of these beds forever. The beds are super expensive but, it was the one bed that had been recommended to us due to my husband's psoriatic rheumatoid arthritis. Needless to say, we were sold within five minutes of trying out the bed (as were the kids) and we got an awesome deal due to a special they were running at the fair.
You just never know what you are going to find at the Fair.
