The countdown is on and soon I'll be able to sink my teeth into some good ole fair food and wrap by fingers around the lap bars of the rides and take in the somewhat pleasant and unpleasant smells in the agriculture building at the East Texas Fair! This years' fair will run Friday, September 19th thru Sunday, September 28th and will be filled with plenty of laughter, screams and yums!

This year the fair is offering you the opportunity to purchase your ride and admission tickets early to save a little cash. If you purchase your admission tickets before 11:59p on September 18th you'll save 20% off the admission price and while you're at it, you might as well go ahead and get that unlimited ride armband for just $20!

This year the East Texas fair will be celebrating it's 99th year and will feature country star Jerrod Niemann, Texas country stars JB and the Moonshine Band, a special Wild About Monkeys show, an extreme high dive show, an alligator show along with East Texas vendors, food and the best midway and carnival rides anywhere!

Check the East Texas Fair website for a complete list of activities and schedule of events.
