Free & Cheap: Enjoy the state fair without breaking the bank


Unless you're going to ride all the attractions, armbands aren't worth the cost, our blogger says.

How do the Free & Cheapers go to the Florida State Fair? The same way we approach most things in life, with an eye on the bottom line. We're there to have the most fun for the least amount of money.
Discount admission days:
If you can manage it, try to go during the least popular times and days. The crowds will be thinner, the lines shorter and the prices cheaper.
College student night, Thursday – purchase a $20 all-you-can-ride wristband, get free fair admission with student I.D.
Student days, Friday and Feb. 20 – Hillsborough County students are given a free admission ticket for Friday; Pasco, Polk and Manatee students get one for Feb. 20. All other students get discounts at the gate on those days: $6 for students ages 12 through 12th grade and $5 for ages 6 to 11.
National Salute to Veterans Day, Feb. 20 – free admission for everyone, not just vets, after 4 p.m.
$5 after 5 p.m. – Adult admission is discounted in the evening on Thursday, Feb. 13, 14, 15 and 16.
4H and FFA days, Saturday and Feb 18 – Free fair admission with member I.D. or club jacket.
Senior days, Feb. 14, 15 and 16 – save on gate admission, only $8 for seniors 55 and older. Advance tickets can be purchased for $6.
