The Great New York State Fair begins on Wednesday (9/23) through September 4th and thanks to the Total Solar Eclipse, you can save money on admission.

The last time the eclipse was here was 1979 and in honor of it's return the Great New York State Fair will hold a very special Solar Eclipse Sale of admission tickets.

The eclipse starts at 1:15 pm and that's when any day admission tickets go on sale for $3. Why 3 dollars? Because that was the price of admission in 1979. Don't delay because only 1,979 tickets will be available and the sale will end at 3:45 pm, which is about the time the eclipse will end..

These tickets are only available online.  A credit card charge will be added to the cost of online purchases, along with a fee of 12 cents per ticket purchased. Limit 2 tickets per person. Kids 12 and under are admitted free every day.

Remember it's only for today and for a limited time....Literally.
