The Fair at the PNE kicked off this weekend bringing attractions, exhibitions, mini donuts, the marketplace, SuperDogs, concerts, and more to the fairgrounds for the 102nd year. The PNE is a summertime staple for locals, tourists, and families from across BC.
Until 12:00pm today (Monday, August 20, 2012) gate admission is free for all. Here are a few more ways you can save on admission and get the most out of your PNE visit this year:
Free Admission for Children
The PNE has brought back its program offering free admission to the fair for children 13 and under, when accompanied by an adult. A maximum of 5 children can get in free with each paying adult (over 21 years old) on any day of the fair.
Vancity Member Day
Vancity Credit Union members are invited to the Fair at the PNE on Wednesday, August 22nd from 11:00am until closing for an admission price of just $5. Last year over 15,000 members presented their debit cards or enviro Visa cards to gain entry for themselves and a friend for $5 each. Visit the main gates (off Hastings and Renfrew) for this deal.
You can also save on admission and Playland ride passes by picking them up ahead of time at participating Safeway and 7-Eleven stores in the Lower Mainland.
Get more out of your visit to the Fair at the PNE by enjoying the WestJet Family Fun Series, Summer Night Concerts, and the nightly Pop City! fireworks celebration. Follow @PNE_Playland on Twitter and Facebook for more event information and possible deals this season.
