Win Tickets to the Puyallup Fair, 'Get Your Happy On!'

Patch is giving away dozens of tickets to the Puyallup Fair. Just sign up for a free email newsletter below for a chance to win.

We've heard the questions: What's been missing in my life these past few months? How can I put an exclamation point on my summer? And can that exclamation point include fried food on a stick?

Here at Patch, we have your answer. Better still, we'll give it to you for free.

Sign up for a Patch newsletter today and you will be entered to win one of dozens of free pairs of tickets to the Puyallup Fair, which runs Sept. 7-23. Even better, if you tell us why we should send your whole family, you'll get a chance to win the Patch Family Pack: 

• four fair tickets (kids 5 and under are free, by the way)

• a Patch tote bag to hold those fair souvenirs

• assorted Patch goodies such as magnets, pens and balloons

• and a story and photo of you and your family on University Place Patch. 

Here's how: Simply fill out the form for a chance to win a pair of tickets. If you want the family pack, write us a note in the comments section at the end of this story explaining in 200 words or less why Patch should send you and your family to the state's biggest fair. 

Each Thursday for the next three weeks, through Sept. 13, we'll hand out one pair of tickets and one family pack to lucky winners from University Place. Winners will be notified by email. 

See you at the Puyallup!

Here's the fine print (click on the attached PDF for complete official rules):

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, sign up for the newsletter in the form above with your name, email and Patch town.
  • All entries must be received by Sept. 13, 2012, noon Pacific time.

Like Ms. Armfield above...we would love a set of family tickets to the fair. Since we decided to focus more on family and make due with one income, things like the Fair are off the list. We would love to go, but even on "free" days for the fair it just seems a little out of reach (and who can watch 2 girls who run in different directions in free days crowds?!!). I would like to be able to spoil them every once and a while without sacrificing something else that's needed or mandatory.

How exciting! The Family Pack would let me Do the Puyallup with my two grandkids. Money has been pretty tight the last few years and even though I live not a mile away from the fair I have not been able to go for a few years - grandkids are at that perfect age to enjoy the rides, animals and food. I can hear it and smell it but even better would be to enjoy it with my darlings!

We're getting lots of good submissions. And yes, I HIGHLY suggest telling us in the comments why your family should go!

If you are new to this area, you might want to read The Fair website for good info about available discounts. http://www.thefair.com/puyallup-fair/deals_discounts/ ... http://www.thefair.com/puyallup-fair/visitor-info/ ... I have not seen anything yet about the private bus company routes/prices this year. I never fight the traffic @ The Fair and always take a sack lunch with water bottle.

I LOVE the Fair and attend every year! The ONLY thing I would miss the Puyallup Fair for is meeting Madonna for lunch!
