Atlanta’s Family-Friendly Fair is Here!
It’s the perfect time of year to visit the Atlanta Fair 2013 and it’s going on right now at Turner Field near downtown Atlanta.
The fair offers all the old favorites like the Fun House, Kiddie Rides, Bear Claws and games to test your skills at balloon popping, coin tossing and clown dunking! Kids under 12 can gain entry for only a dollar; adults are$3. Once inside, you will be temped to play games by the carnival workers who are actually quite respectful and well-groomed compared to the typical “carnie” one might imagine. They will tempt you to try your luck at winning a big prize. And, some games even have a free prize for the younger kids regardless of whether they win or lose.
Pizza, hot dogs, cotton candy and other typical fair food is tempting, too, but make sure you bring cash. Debit and credit cards are accepted at the main ticket counter, but beyond that, you need cash and temporary ATM machines are not always operational inside the fair grounds.
There is just something really fun about seeing the skyscrapers of the Atlanta skyline from an open air seat several stories high. You will likely remember that view as well as peering into the infield of Turner Field the most from your fair experience this year. And, hopefully, you will also remember the smile on your child’s face when you leave because they are happy you shared the experience with them.
A great family night for under $50 in Atlanta, now through the end of March, is the Atlanta Fair. Nightly entertainment on a large sound stage and a larger than traditional assortment of rides for younger children (under 12) make the Atlanta Fair a family suitable event. Parking is available directly across from the main entrance for only $6, if you arrive early.
