City set for over a week of fun

August 31, 2012 by  

An eleven-day celebration is about to roll into Oklahoma City’s State Fair Park, as the Oklahoma State Fair comes to town in mid-September.

At the fair, guests will be able to enjoy the competitive exhibitions that take place each year in the creative arts, cooking and canning, crafts, and livestock competitions. These exhibits and ribbons will be on display throughout most of the fair. This year, the fair is offering a special feature called ‘Dr. Pepper Days’, running from September 13 – 20 and featuring rides for discounts. During Dr. Pepper Days, guests need to bring in a Dr. Pepper soda can to receive $8 off a ride wristband. September 13 offers a discount and everyone can attend for only $2, while on September 17, all students through grade 12 will receive free admission. Military members with ID are entitled to free admission on September 18, while those aged 55 or older can enjoy the same benefits the following day. Most rides at this event require between three and five coupons but a family pack is available, providing 30 tickets at $20. Entrance tickets do not include rides, entertainment, or special events.

In its entirety, the fair spans from Thursday, September 13 until Sunday, September 23, and organizers have no doubt used poster printing to promote it. The main gates open every day at 8:00 am but the carnival portion of this event does not open until 1:00 pm on weekdays and 11:00 am on weekends. Admission is $9 per adult and $5 for children ages 6 to 11.
