The modern fair evolved from the old-time unfair, a morally devoid ground where the milk-bottle game was played with ping-pong balls and the cowboy who fell off fastest won the rodeo's grand prize. Celebrate favorable reversals with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two single-day admissions to the 2011 Puyallup Fair (up to a $22 value). Children ages 5 and younger receive free admission, and military personnel receive free admission on September 12 and 19. Both tickets are valid for admission Monday–Thursday on September 12-15 and 19-22, 2011. The fair features a variety of acts throughout the September schedule, so check the website's listings for the ideal attendance dates.
One of the largest fairs in the area, the Puyallup Fair delights attendants with a plethora of traveling rides, concerts, acts, shows, and parades. Treat sound-wave receptors to the groove-building melodies of one-mouth band Bronkar Lee, mystify funny bones with the hard-to-believe magic and comedic antics of Steve the Pretty Good, or publicly imitate a chicken with help from Master Hypnotist Tina Marie. Though not included in today's Groupon, Puyallup participants can peruse the fairgrounds and hop on one of the fair's many rides, designed to accommodate speed seekers as little as 36 inches tall (6–10 tickets, $0.50/ticket), or nibble fairway fare, some of which comes on a stick or a fast-delivery jetpack.
Though the Puyallup Fair sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
