Gayle Anderson was live in Pomona for "THOUGHTFUL AND THANKFUL THURSDAY AND FREE FAIR WEEKEND." The 2012 L.A. County Fair is now open, Wednesday through Sunday until September 30th. As a part of this year's festivities, the Los Angeles County Fair has a number of community-related events designed to support our local community. In order to say thanks for these thoughtful acts, the L.A. County Fair will provide FREE admission to fairgoers who participate in the featured donation. Collected donations will be given to a charity with a portion of the proceeds returning to a local community-based organization.
Today is "THOUGHTFUL AND THANKFUL THURSDAY: The Shoe & Sock Drive. Bring in one (1) pair of NEW athletic shoes or packets of NEW socks for school-age children (size 10 youth to 12 adult) from noon to 6 p.m. and you will receive one FREE admission to the L.A. County Fair, which is good for today only. Proceeds benefit Shoes That Fit. Based in Claremont, CA, Shoes That Fit provides new shoes to children in need so they can attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play. It is the largest national organization of its kind and has helped children in need in thousands of schools across America. 100% of community donations go directly to children.
If you forget to bring in new shoes and socks, don't fret. The L.A. County Fair has many opportunities for fairgoers to receive FREE or discounted admission to the fair. Fair admission is just $5 after 5 p.m., Wednesdays through Fridays when you present this coupon: $5 after 5 p.m. Coupon.
Don't forget, Thursday is "Thirsty Thursday," where guests can enjoy half-price fountain beverages and bottled water all day.
Save on admission during "Food Drive Fridays"! From noon to 6 p.m., guests receive FREE fair admission in exchange for five (5) canned products on each Friday that the fair is open.
