Save on Fair Admission…and Help the Local Food Bank
You can save money on State Fair admission...and help fight hunger here in our area. The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, State Fair of Louisiana and United Way of Northwest Louisiana are teaming up to provide a way for fair-goers to help those in need in our region -- and get reduced admission to the fair, too. The food drive and reduced admission will take place every day and night of the fair, through November 13th. All you have to do is bring three cans of food to the gate when you head to the fair -- and you get $3 off your admission cost. State Fair General Manager Chris Giordano calls it a "win-win situation for everyone." Food Bank Executive Director Martha Marak encourages everyone in the community to go out and show their support for food-insecure individuals in our area.
