The fair is a fun filled event that happens over the course of nine days.

“My favorite ride was the Hamer,” Sophomore Destiney Nelson said.

The fair is open from 11:00am to 10:00 pm on the weekdays, and during the weekend, it is open from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm.

“One of my least favorite things was how many people were there,” stated Sophomore Gavin Michaelson.

To get into the fair it costs seven dollars.

“Lines got long when it got darker and more people showed up which made waiting in the lines feel like forever,” Nelson said.

To ride all of the rides for one day it is 30 dollars, but if you want to get through the lines faster you can get the fast pass. This was 15 dollars more and allowed you to get onto rides quicker.

“Getting the wristband was worth it because you got to ride all of the rides as many times as you wanted,” Freshman Storm Nelson informs us.

Besides just rides at the fair you can go enjoy many other things, such as food and the shows people put on.

“Seeing all the good options on the food you could have made food at home sound gross,” Michaelson said.

“Its really fun if you go with your close friends,”Destiney Nelson said.

But if you plan on going to the fair Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, you can buy something called the pepsi wristband which pays for your entry into the fair and also for rides.

“Buying the fast pass wasn’t worth it because the lines were just as long,” Storm Nelson said.

If you’re a picky eater, the fair should have something for you because the fair has many different types of food.

“It is easy to run into people you know at the fair which can end in a fun night,” Gavin Michaelson said.

According to Storm Nelson, walking at the fair can hurt your feet because you are doing it for so long.

The Eastern Idaho State Fair started in 1902 in Blackfoot Idaho, which is where it is still put on.
