It’s that time of year again, the first week of October, The Big Fresno Fair is here! The fair is one of the biggest highlights every year. From the food to the rides everyone is guaranteed a great time. There are fun farm animals and even some exotic birds. Not to mention, the amazing food. The fair is an amazing place to go with your friends and family for a crazy fun time. One thing is for sure, bring money, you’re bound to spend your allowance.
The Big Fresno Fair is a much anticipated event every year. It features a series of exhibits and attractions featuring multiple animals, there are only a few days left to get the fair experience. The main attraction for most of the youth is the array of carnival rides, ranging from the Kiddie Carnival to the Main Carnival. People can buy tickets for a dollar each but people normally buy wristbands. Wristbands allow you to go on all the rides and you can go as many times as you want. Although the tickets and wristbands are a bit pricy, it is completely worth it, you are bound to have some fun.
The food is without a doubt amazing. However, there is a bit of an issue, the food is EXTREMELY expensive. $8 for 2 small sodas?! You definitely have to save up to have a good time. There are some weird foods at the fair, from fried pickles to to fried cheeses curds. Everything is fried! Whenever you go to the fair make sure you get some dragon’s breath, corn dogs, and that delicious turkey leg! They say money can’t buy happiness but it can buy you some amazing cinnamon rolls.
The fair is such an exciting place to go. You get the whole package; the food, the rides, animals, and exhibits. In total the fair is an amazing place and environment to be and it will forever a tradition in the Fresno County. The fair is definitely worth the money.
