The New York State Fairgrounds hosts hundreds of events throughout the fair, drawing nearly one million people to an incredible variety of attractions. Check their online events calendar regularly to make sure you don't miss anything.

The Director of The Fair Dan O'Hara stopped in this morning to provide us with a top five list of survival tips. Feel free to read the list and listen to the interview as Dan and I expand on it.

Number 5) Come hungry, there will be lots of great food to enjoy at the fair.

Number 4) Bring your ez-pass tag for easier parking.

Number 3)  Lots of free family entertainment to enjoy at Chevy Court so check the events calender to find out who's playing, when and for FREE!

Number 2) Get your tickets early to save money. Advanced sale tickets available now.

Number 1) Get ready for some great live music! Tickets still available for some big acts coming to the fair.

For more, listen back to Dan's visit this morning.
