CA State Fair offers deal to unemployed/kids

Recession Special!  California State Fair Reaches out to Community
Unemployed Californians get FREE Admission into Fair

SACRAMENTO (July 19, 2010)- The California State Fair is your passport to adventure this summer with plenty of BIG FUN!  During these tough economic times, the Fair continues to offer deals for families including food prices that are 25% lower than last year outside of the Magnificent Midway, Kids Park and Miller Lite Grandstand as well as amazing exhibits, shows and other entertainment with the price of admission.

On Tuesday, July 20 and 27, Californians who can provide proof they’re currently out of work by showing an unemployment check stub can get one FREE ticket into the Fair!  Plus, every Tuesday is Kids Day: children 12 and under get in for FREE and all carnival rides are $1 each for the entire family!  “Summer is usually a time for family vacations and spending quality time together,” said Norbert J. Bartosik, State Fair CEO & General Manager.  “The California State Fair is doing its part to ensure that priceless memories are affordable for people who may not otherwise be able to enjoy those special moments.”

The person who is currently without a job must bring their unemployment check stub to any Cal Expo ticket booth, on either Tuesday of the Fair, in order to receive the FREE ticket, which is only good for admission on the day it is issued.  For more information about this offer, the public can call the California State Fair Box Office at (916) 263-3049 or e-mail customer_service@calexpo.com.
