Sunday through Thursday, the ride wristband price will include the cost of admission to get into the fair. On Friday and Saturday, admission will only be $5. Children ages 11 and under get in free every day.

The fair will host two family nights this year where unlimited ride wristbands will be half off. Those family days are Thursday, June 6 and Wednesday, June 12.
