If you’re 60 years of age or older, there’s something special about Tuesdays at the 2004 L.A. County Fair. Seniors will have their own days on Sept. 14 and 21. Both days have been designated as Senior Days at the Fair and will offer special admission prices, information, entertainment and contests just for seniors. The Fair runs Sept. 10-26.
Admission for Senior Tuesdays is specially priced at $4, half price of regular senior weekday admission of $8. Seniors also have the opportunity to join the Senior “Funner” Club when they bring a group of 20 or more people to Senior Tuesdays. For $12, each member will receive Fair admission, lunch at Duggan’s All-American Barbeque, an L.A. County Fair Commemorative Pin and free bus parking. Tickets for the Senior “Funner” Club must be purchased ahead of time through the Advanced Sales department. Additional information may be obtained by calling (909) 865-4050.
Bingo will be held at Duggan’s All-American Barbecue patio from noon to 3 p.m. A special patio lunch for seniors may be purchased at Duggan’s. A special tram will take senior riders on a special tour around the grounds. Special shows and events, including musical performances, are scheduled at various Fair attractions. Seniors are invited to participate in a variety of special contests including butter churning, ballroom dancing, senior milk drinking and speed knitting and crocheting. Bingo will also be available at the Fairplex Park clubhouse along with a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. There are other special contests for seniors throughout the Fair.
