The fair is here! Let's discuss.

First order of business? THE INSANE PRICES.

I will be taking my daughters to the fair, but money is tight. Anyone have any tips on ways to save money at the LC Fair?

Save money by not eating there. Also depending on the ages of your kids it may be cheaper to buy tickets instead of the bracelets. Some businesses have coupons. Hardees use to but not sure if they still do.

stay home or take your family on a nice pick nick up at tims state park or to the kids park in town . pack a lunch and take a drive on old 64 high way from monte eagle to chatt. make a day of it up at fall creek falls .heck chucky cheese will cost you less than the fair ,we stopped going 20 years ago and did different things with our kids that cost us a lot less even back then.

People will go to the fair, take a title loan and still not pay their light bill. Then they'll show up at the food pantry looking for a handout

I want to know why all the carnies are always drunk and look disgusting. I know it's a fair so it's not the most formal place but at least be sober. Also, why is there no farris wheel?

I thought that some of the carnies were decent compared to recent years. I was shocked at how clean and nice some were. The prices are ridiculous though. I know we were there the night of the concert and $20 is a good price on a concert ticket but to just want to be there for rides it is high. Also for small children who can only ride a handful of the rides $20 is way to much. Just my thought! We had a great time anyways.( now that I'm a mom I feel so guilty about the fits I threw as a child wanting to go to the fair and my mom saying it was too expensive. I didn't understand until now!) lol
