The Erie County Fair and Tops Friendly Markets are teaming up to help customers save money on tickets to the fair, scheduled Aug. 9-20.
Fairgoers could save up to 30 percent off the normal $10 at-gate admission price by buying $7 advance ticket vouchers at Tops Friendly Markets, Marty Biniasz of the Erie County Agricultural Society announced Wednesday morning. Customers can redeem their Tops vouchers at any gate for fair entry, skipping a stop at the ticket office. Seniors aged 60 or older can save $2 off the fair admission by buying $5 advance tickets.
The advance tickets can be purchased through Aug. 8 at participating Tops Friendly Markets.
Fairgoers can also save $5 by buying advance tickets through Aug. 8 for the James E. Strates Shows Midway's weekday one price ride days on Aug. 9-11 and Aug. 15-18. Vouchers for the ride tickets can be purchased for $25 at Tops Friendly Markets.
