POMEROY — Season and membership tickets for the 2012 Meigs County Fair to be held Aug. 13-18 on the Rock Spring Fairgrounds are now on sale.
Debbie Watson, Fair Board secretary, advises that the ticket prices are the same as last year — $16 for season tickets which are sold only to individuals, and $17 for membership tickets which qualifies the holder to run for the fair board or to vote on membership.
Purchase of either a season or membership ticket provides admission to the grounds and grandstand events, as well as parking, as do 4-H tickets.
However, season ticket holders and those with 4-H tickets, must pay $5 each day they attend the fair to ride on the mechanical rides.
Those who pay the $8 admission at the gate entitles the purchaser not only to enter the fairgrounds, but to ride all day and attend grandstand events at no additional cost. As in previous years, children under two are admitted to the fairgrounds without charge, but must pay to get on the rides.
Season tickets can be purchased for $16 at Baum Lumber Co., Chester; TNT Pit Stop, Middleport; Swisher Drug Store, Pomeroy; Rutland Department Store, Rutland; Connie’s Corner, Langsville; Taz’s Marathon, S.R. 7, Pomeroy; Home National Bank, Racine; OSU Extension, Meigs County Office, Pomeroy; Reed’;s Country Store, Reedsville; Dettwiller Lumber Co., Pomeroy; Gloeckner’s Restaurant, Pomeroy; Darwin Grocery, Route 681, Darwin; Farmers Bank, Pomeroy and Tuppers Plains; King Hardware, Middleport; and McDonald’s, Pomeroy.
Purchase of a season or membership ticket is required to exhibit at the fair. The deadline for making an entry is 4 p.m. on Aug. 4, and no entries will be accepted after that date, according to Watson. The fair board office on the fairgrounds will be open on Aug. 3 and 4 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accept entries.
Again this year reserved parking is available in specified areas for $25 a week.
