One of the most well-known events of October in Little Rock is the Arkansas State Fair, open to the public Oct. 11-21. Some great features for payment methods this year include: $30 super passes that are $10 cheaper than paying for admission and a ride wristband at the fair, dollar day on Mondays which is $1 admission, and a free shuttle ride back and forth from fair-sponsored parking.

Once fair-goers arrive, there are many different rides that range from roller coasters going upside down to merry-go-rounds for younger children in attendance. Rides vary from easy (this level is for riders that think the swings are too scary, rides include: the ferris wheel, the hanglider, and the merry-go-round), medium (this level is for riders that aren’t ready to feel like they might fall out of their seat, rides include: the himalayan, the swings, and the pharaoh), and difficult (this level is for those not faint of heart, rides include: the fireball, the drop, and the cranium shaker).

Walking into the fairgrounds, attendees immediately smell fried food from anything to fried butter on a stick, funnel cake sundaes, spiral spuds, and so much more. Walking from vendor to vendor, one will see the similarities between the booths.

If rides and food aren’t exciting enough, fairgoers can wander around the barns and see animals such as cows, horses, goats, bunnies, pigs, really any farm animal. The fair has something for everyone and is a great time.
