The 125th anniversary version of The Central Washington State Fair kicks off Friday at noon when the gates to the fair open. Fair President and General Manager Greg Stewart says a lot of work and a lot of tradition combine to bring people together every year at State Fair Park. "There's a lot of people that come back every year if it's nothing more than to have a Young Life Sandwich a lamb burger or an elephant ear."
The theme is "Let's Party. The first day of the fair from noon to 4:00 p.m. it will cost $1 for both parking and admission.
Many people wait for special days to attend the fair like Franz Bread day which is Monday or Senior and Military appreciation day. That's set for next Tuesday at The Central Washington State Fair.
