The PNE announced its entertainment and exhibition line-up this morning for attractions that are free with your PNE admission. Joining the President’s Choice SuperDogs, The Peking Acrobats, Evolution of Extreme, and Pop City! A Pyro Celebration will be a live version of the Family Feud game show and an impressive Star Trek exhibit.
Star Trek: The Exhibition
This world-famous attraction will be brought in for the PNE from Vienna, Austria. It will have its own pavilion, occupying 20,000 square feet of space at the fair. Walk through the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, browse masks and models, imagine you’re getting beamed in the Transporter Room, and take a photo in Captain Kirk’s chair.
After six years of marriage my husband recently discovered just how much of a Trekker I am so this news excites me the most — sorry Superdogs!
Family Feud Live will be hosted daily by former Entertainment Tonight co-host Bob Goen. Be a part of the audience or throw your hat in the ring and participate. Prizes are to be won if you and your teammates know the answers to popular poll questions.
These two new attractions compliment the fair’s marketplace, Playland‘s rides, and the 2nd annual rib festival competition, and the international sand sculpture competition, and the legendary Dal Richards Orchestra.
The PNE has made an effort to bring back family entertainment and daring attractions along with promoting creative food options — like the deep-fried Pop Tarts last year. The Fair at the PNE will run from Saturday, August 18th to Monday, September 3rd, 2012. Playland is now open Monday through Friday, 10:00am to 3:00pm with extended hours beginning June 30th.
