Price reductions of any kind are few and far between these days, but general admission to the 2008 Franklin County Fair is less than the previous year. However, only those skipping the midway rides will realize the savings.
The eight-day 2008 Franklin County Fair, whose theme this year is “Over the Top,” begins Saturday, July 12 at the fairgrounds in Hilliard, 4100 Columbia St. The summer tradition continues through July 19.
Last year, general admission to the fair was $8 or $9, depending on the day, and included rides. This year, fair organizers have slashed the gate price to $5 or $6, depending on the day; parking and all daily events and grandstand entertainment is included in the cost.
