Thrill-seekers and funnel cake-lovers rejoice — the fair is back in town. The Cajun Heartland State Fair's midway is ready for action beginning Thursday evening.

Advance discounted tickets can be purchased at the Cajundome box office until 5 p.m. Friday. Fair-goers can purchase 22 ride tickets for $11 versus the regular price of $25. These tickets are valid Friday, May 24-Sunday, June 2.

Another savings option for Memorial Day fun is the Supersaver wrist band also on advance sale at the box office. For $16, experience all the rides from 5-11 p.m. on Monday, May 27 only. This wrist band must be purchased before Monday at 5 p.m. to receive the discount.

For those kids who just can’t wait until the weekend to experience the action, Thursday (tonight) is one-ticket ride night. Bring a can of non-perishable food this evening to benefit FoodNet at the tunnel entrance to help fight hunger in our community. Advance discount ride tickets are not valid tonight — sorry, you can get a dipped ice cream cone at the fair, but no double-dipping on savings.

Hours of the midway and grandstand are weekdays, 5-11 p.m. and noon-11 p.m. on weekends. Be sure to check out the Cajundome website for additional promotions during the Cajun Heartland State Fair and like the Cajundome Facebook page for fan-only promotions.
