7 Tips To Help You Plan The Perfect Day At The Fair!

Happy Family Enjoying Summer Day An Amusement Park

Summer is in full swing this year! With warmer weather and extended sunlight, it’s time to explore exciting ways to spend your day. This summer, take a trip to your local fairgrounds for wild thrills, exciting performances, and fascinating food. Planning your trip and making sure you hit all of the event’s highlights is the key to having a memorable day. Gather your family or a group of close friends and check out these 7 tips for planning your day at the local fair.

7 Fair Day Planning Tips:

Carnival icon with #1Tickets Please
Some local fairs and amusement parks allow you to purchase entry, parking, attraction, and game tickets online. Research your local fair to see if they offer online ticket purchases to skip the initial line. Purchasing online or in advance may have its own benefits like discounts, bundles, or early entry. Regardless, knowing that you’ve secured your tickets ahead of time will save you hassle later.

Carnival icon with #2Gear Up
Make sure you pack for a lengthy and eventful day. Packing a light bag with items like sunscreen, water, a small handheld fan, a hat, a snack, hand sanitizer, and wet wipes will help you better prepare for the day ahead.

Carnival with #3Check For Special Events
While the fair itself is enough to make a summer day exciting, some fairs have special events, performances, competitions, animal encounters, and more on selected days. It’s always a great idea to visit your local fair’s website for a complete calendar of events and more information.

Carnival icon with #4Cash Is Key
While digital payments and card readers are extremely common now, it is still a great idea to keep some cash on you for local vendors who may not be able to read a chip or tap to pay just quite yet. If something catches your eye, be that a snack, some art, or a fun trinket you’ll want to make sure that you have a few dollars on hand. While ATMs are typically available on-site, you’ll likely be paying a premium to use them. Come prepared and skip the sneaky fees.

Carnival icon with #5Try A New Snack
Fair food is known almost across the nation for being different, exciting, and at times – a little crazy. Make sure to take a look around to see what new and unique dishes are waiting for you. Whether it’s deep-fried, roasted, or on a stick, there are so many new things to try. Don’t be afraid to get adventurous!

Carnival icon with #6Meet Local Farm Animals
At many state and county fairs, you have the chance to say “Hello” to the local livestock. These friendly farm animals are likely to be with their farmers or local agricultural students who are usually very happy to share more information about the animals accompanying them. Sometimes you may be allowed to pet or feed specific animals. Be sure to read posted signage for times and procedures if signup is required. Remember to always be respectful and gentle!

Carnival icon with #7Know Your Odds
Playing a few fair games for fun is a great way to spend some time during your day out, but know that the odds of walking away with the giant stuffed animal or any form of grand prize are incredibly low at best. With that in mind, enjoy the games for what they are, laugh, and know that your real prizes are the memories you made during your day at the fair.
