No Need to Pay Full Price to Get into the Fair!

August 4, 2010

My fellow Fair lovers, it is 30 days til the gates open for the 88th  anniversary of the L.A. County Fair! That’s 30 days until a ride on the Ferris wheel, 30 days til you find out if your cookies won a blue ribbon, 30 days until you get to rock out at the End of Summer Concert Series and 30 days until my first Hot Dog on a Stick in almost a year! What’s really great is we have so many discounts and promotions, you should not have to pay full price to get in! It’s Pure.Value. my friends.
First off, on opening weekend – Labor Day Weekend – admission is $1 Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. One dollar! You can bring a carload of people for just 10 bucks. Prices do go up to regular weekend rates after 1 p.m. – so be there before 1!
Pre-sale tickets are available online for $10 for adults and $6 for children through Aug. 31. Pre-sale carnival ticket discounts are also available online. Check it out.
Perhaps the best thing we have to offer is the season pass. Just $24.95 for ages 6 and older – gets you in every day of the Fair!
Give blood and get a free Fair ticket. The American Red Cross and the Fair have their annual blood drives Aug. 20 and Sept. 14 at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel. Sign up at and enter sponsor code fairmckinley.
Food Drive Fridays are back. Bring in five cans of Ralphs brand food on Fridays to the Fair and get into the Fair for free! All canned food will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
By the way, you can buy $10 any-day tickets at participating Ralphs grocery stores from Aug. 23 – Oct. 3. And get a coupon at McDonald’s for McDonald’s Wednesdays – $20 admission and unlimited ride carnival wristband (available beginning Aug. 30).
There’s also College Thursdays, Community Days, A Weekend for Heroes for law enforcement and retirement, Senior Wednesdays and $5 after 5 p.m. Wednesdays – Fridays.
See what I’m saying? If I bump into you during the Fair and you tell me you paid full price, you’re going to get my, “Really? Really?” look. And you don’t want that…
