WEST ALLIS — The Wisconsin State Fair kicked off strong Thursday morning with opening ceremonies promising for days of cream puffs, animals, carnival rides and foods on a stick. Officials are offering fair-goers several different promotions to get on the grounds for a discount this year.
Thursday is $2 day benefiting the Hunger Task Force. Fair-goers will receive $2 admission when they donate at least two cans of pears or peaches. Attendees can also make a cash donation outside of any gate. Be sure to get there early, the promotion ends at 4 p.m.
Happy Celebrate Wisconsin Day. Wisconsin State Fair is showing its famous Wisconsin hospitality by offering a deal to those who are visiting our great state. Visitors can buy two adult admission tickets for only $14 dollars when they present their out-of-state ID at any ticket window.
