The gates open at 3 p.m., so come on out as early as you can. There will be a Deep Fried QR Code Scavenger Hunt where you can earn a T-shirt for finding your way around the fairgrounds. You can start that as early as 3 p.m., but they have to be completed by 8 p.m. We expect it to take about an hour, so plan accordingly. You can prepare yourself now by downloading TriOut to your iPhone and while you’re at it, go ahead and download our State Fair app to your iPhone or Android phone.

Don’t delay, RSVP for the Tweetup today! The cost is $5 and includes your gate admission to the Fair. And also, don’t forget to print your ticket. You WILL need this to get into the gate!
