The weekend we've all been waiting for has finally arrived! The State Fair of Texas will open its gates on September 28, and for the next 24 days, you can indulge in a variety of fried foods, attractions and rides at Fair Park.
Unfortunately, all of those fair treats and experiences don't come for cheap. Plus, you have to pay for admission into the park.
At least you can score discounts on your admission tickets by using these helpful tips.
- Get a coupon from McDonald's to take $5 off an adult ticket or half off a child's.
- Bring an empty Dr. Pepper can to the fair after 5 PM to get half off your $18 admission ticket.
- Bring a full 20-ounce bottle of Dasani water or another Coke product to donate on opening day, then get in for just $9.
Don't forget that you can also save money by buying your tickets at Kroger or through the DART. Have fun this weekend and enjoy some great fried desserts for us!
