Tickets to the Erie County Fair will be sold for half price Monday, which is 150 days from the start of this year's fair – marking the 150th year the event has been held at the Hamburg Fairgrounds.
Tickets bought today will be $5 each – half off adult admission – and may be used any day of the 2018 fair, which runs Aug. 8-19.
Customers can visit www.ECFair.org or the fairgrounds main office from 3 to 8 p.m. today. There is a limit of 10 tickets per person.
The Erie County Agricultural Society voted in 1868 by a one-vote margin to move the fair from Springville to property owned by Luther Titus and the Hamburg Driving Park Association. The property included a new half-mile racetrack and was offered free of charge for hosting the annual fair.
