N.C. State Fair visitors can take advantage of reduced ticket prices - and help their favorite school in the Wake County Public School System.
As part of a program that started in 2013, fairgoers can support Wake schools by purchasing online admission tickets through a special Wake County Public School System Etix page. Be sure to select your school from the dropdown menu so you can key in the your school code before you buy the tickets.
Schools will receive $2 for each adult admission ticket purchased and $1 for each child ticket purchased. Tickets are $8 for adults and $3 for children. That's the same price for advanced admission tickets to the fair through 11:59 p.m., Oct. 12.
The fair runs Oct. 12 to Oct. 22 in Raleigh.
