How does a family of 4 save at least $22?

Most fair enthusiasts know that the best way to see the fair (other than working there) is to get your tickets in advance. It saves you a good bit of cash and you can avoid standing in line to get your admission tickets. But you only have a few days left to buy them.

Adult tickets are $7 in advance, $9 at the gate. Children’s tickets are $3 in advance, $4 at the gate. Ride sheets (18 tickets per sheet) are $10 in advance, $1 each at the fair.

Discount tickets are available on the website and at nine retail locations through Thursday. On Thursday, the discount will be available through 11:59 p.m. on the web and you must be in line by 6 p.m. at the retail locations.

I did a bit of math (scary for a communications major, I know). A family of 4 who is buying 2 adult tickets (save $4), 2 children’s tickets (save $2) and 2 ride sheets (save $8) will save $22 over gate prices. So it goes to show that a little bit of planning will save you real money. You can then plan to use your savings to buy your favorite fair foods!

So don’t delay. Buy your tickets today.
