    Your pricing is not clear for 6-12-2014. My wife and I are bring our grand daughter and it is not clears as to what the parking and entrance fees are totally. What is clear is that the day wristbands are $30 each. If I buy wristbands online now will there be an entrance fee 6-12-2014? Are there still coupons still available?

      You really need to follow the link to the event’s official website for detailed information. I just post this as a sort of cheat sheet, a heads up and a link back to the Fair’s own website. They don’t pay me to advertise and I have no connection with the organizers. Also, their info may change, so it’s always best to follow my links directly to the source.

      You’ll need to get them from the fair website. Their pre-sale was over on June 1, so you missed that. (BTW, I don’t sell tickets, I just tell readers about local offers so they can go get the best deals directly from the source.)
