PUEBLO, Colo. – The 2015 Colorado State Fair will open its gates to celebrate the 143rd year as Colorado’s popular summer attraction on Friday, August 28th. For those who enjoy great deals, here’s an opportunity to enjoy a “Sneak Peek” before opening day.

 

“We strive to provide a family friendly event and the Sneak Peak is a great opportunity for families to enjoy the carnival at a discounted price. This is just one of our many discounts, which are offered on a daily basis,” said Chris Wiseman, Colorado State Fair General Manager.

 

Crabtree Amusements will feature approximately 45 rides that thrill, twist, and whirl fairgoers. During the Sneak Peek, $15 will give carnival fans an unlimited ride band and gate admission.

During the Fair, the carnival will be open:

2 p.m. to midnight--Monday through Thursday

The 98.9 Magic FM Sneak Peek is followed by the grand opening of the 2015 Colorado State Fair on Friday, August 28th.
