NC State Fair Offers Special Price For Military

Current and former military service members can take advantage of a new admission price offered at the N.C. State Fair.

Tickets for active-duty, reserve, National Guard, retired and veteran personnel will be $5. The fair begins Oct. 13.

The military discount tickets are not available in advance or online. Eligible fairgoers should present proof of military service at the gate on the day of their visit. Spouses and children with military IDs also are eligible for the discount.

In addition, on the annual Military Appreciation Day, fairgoers are encouraged to bring items for military care packages to a drop-off location. The USO Mobile Unit, equipped with video gaming systems and nationwide calling capabilities, will be on display along with other military-related activities near the waterfall stage.

    What about a family with a Special needs Child or person? Not asking for a hand out just would be nice.
