The Great New York State Fair, the premier destination for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers will run from Today, Thursday Aug. 22nd, through Sept. 2nd 2013.  Did you know that The Fair has added three new rides for the kids?

The New York State Fair Midway will feature three brand new rides for young thrill-seekers. The rides will be found in the Kiddleland area of the Strates Shows Midway.

The new rides are:

1) The Volkswagon Kiddie Ride. Calling all car enthusiasts! You’re sure to be snug as a bug as you ride the circuit in our all-new Volkswagons. Honk your horns and steer your way around the track while you’re jamming to the music and cruising on!
2) The Tractor Kiddie Ride. Come on down to the farm and have a great time driving or riding on your very own tractor. Beep your horn and sing along to your favorite farm-themed music. What kid doesn’t want to ride a tractor?
3) The Quad Runner Kiddie Ride. Ready for some four-wheeling fun? Rev those engines and toot those horns. The Quad Runner – an adventure awaits you!

A Strates Shows FunCard offering $24 in ride credits for $14 is on sale at the State Fair Box Office and at supermarkets across New York State.

Get set to enjoy 375 acres filled with fun, food, entertainment, animals and educational exhibits.

The 2013 theme is “Sharing the Bounty and Pride of NY.” It came from one of the Fair’s fans and was voted on by people from across the state. The theme conveys the overall Fair’s messaging of being a celebration of New York’s economic, cultural and institutional strengths, with a special emphasis on agriculture as one of the State’s largest and most important industries.

The Great New York State Fair is the state’s largest music festival, featuring dozens of bands and performers on seven stages and at other locations throughout the Fairgrounds.
