Let’s Go to the Fair!

We had such a blast at the San Diego County Fair last week, and now I want to give one mom’s guide reader the awesome ticket package that I used during our visit…FullSizeRender

My kids are 7 & 9, which seems like the perfect ages for the fair to me. They can navigate crowds on their own two feet, they don’t need naps, they are open to trying some of the interesting fair foods, and they are old enough to soak in everything the fair has to offer.

Here’s what we do at the fair to get the most out of the day while keeping expenses low(ish)….

  • Limit our time at the rides and games section of the fair. There are 50 ride tickets in the Costco San Diego County Fair Savings Pack that we’re giving away, and when we run out, we move on. Each ride will take between 3 and 6 tickets and, really, there is SO MUCH MORE TO DO that is fun and free.

  • Bring in our own snacks and drinks. Yes, this is totally allowed and will save you a lot. Of course, it’s great to try some fair food. Use the savings book included in our prize pack to help make the most of your fair food purchases!
  • Visit the “Creative Youth” exhibits. San Diego students enter their art, photography and even their Lego creations to be judged and displayed. It’s awesome!

Whatever you do at the fair, you will more than likely leave feeling like you didn’t get to do it all! So whether you’ve been already this year or not, this prize package is for you.

To enter for your chance to win the fair savings pack from Costco, which includes 4 admissions, a parking pass, ride tickets, buy-one-get-one drink tickets and a savings booklet, simply sign up for the mom’s guide newsletter. One newsletter subscriber will be selected this weekend and announced via the newsletter next week.

  2. My boys are telling me 100 things to say to get picked. They are really good kids and sometimes because of their brothers disability they have to miss out on things. This would be a great gift for me and my husband to treat them too.
