Love it!!! When it's something you have grown up doing you can't miss it! It can be pricey as any fair... but they do offer plenty of free events... childrens barn, tractor pulls, demo, list goes on! I do think if you have children go for the bracelete night for the rides... saves a chunck of cash for sure!
