Each year the New York State fair gets better and better either with a new ride addition , a special performer or some really good deals on admission. This year for the up and coming 2020 fair season according to News 9 The Great New York State Fair will not only potentially be five days longer, there will also be lower ticket prices. The fair officials announced Tuesday morning that tickets will cost $3 via a pre-sale online purchase or $5 at the gate. Kids 12 and under will still be free of charge.

Last year fair specials may have changed a bit, as there wont be 1$ Thursdays but ,the State Fair website  will be holding a one-day sale of admission tickets for $2 each. You can buy up to 8 tickets. Only 10,000 will be sold.

I know we are a few months away from the opening day of the State fair however some people may need to plane a little ahead for work and other purposes. This could definitely be a great  end of the summer trip for your kids and family. Check more details out here.
