Go Big' Theme Reflects Fair's Attitude on Fun

On Monday, Aug. 27, three of the hottest young performers on tour Corbin Bleu (of High School Musical and High School Musical 2 fame) , Drake Bell and Jordan Pruitt will step on stage for a Kids Day concert, presented by Comcast. Advance tickets for all concerts are available at the Flynn Regional Box Office in Burlington, Copy Ship Fax in Essex Junction, online at www.flynntix.org or by phone, 802-86-FLYNN. Advance concert tickets include admission to the Fair the day of the show, a $10 value.

The organizers havent forgotten the thrill-seeking motor sports fans, bringing back the Land Air Freestyle MX Extreme Motorcycle show, presented by Fox 44 and ABC 22 on Tuesday night, followed Wednesday by the Championship Double Figure 8 Racing which also includes a new roll-over contest for extra excitement. Thursday night brings the sound of crunching fenders and spinning tires when the Earth Waste Systems Demolition Derby hits the dirt track at the grandstand. Labor Day action concludes with a full afternoon of National Tractor Pullers Association Truck and Tractor Pulling competition, sponsored by G. Stone Commercial Division. Tickets for all motor sports will be available at www.flynntix.org or by phone, 802-86FLYNN. Admission to the Fair is not included with motor sports advance tickets.

The Fair runs Aug. 25 through Sept. 3 at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. Organizers say close to 300,000 people could stop during the 10 run. Weve worked extra hard this year to make the Fair more affordable for families, whether its a day visiting the exhibits and animals or an evening at one of our big concerts or motor sports events in the Coca-Cola Grandstand, explained David Grimm, general manager of Champlain Valley Exposition, home of the Fair.

Weve simplified the admission specials this year by offering advance discount admission tickets for $7 for adults and $4 for children, he added. By planning ahead, families can come any day during the 10 days of the Fair and save significantly on admission and ride tickets.
