SENSORY FRIENDLY EVENT at the CLARK COUNTY FAIR

The management of the annual Clark County Fair is making special plans to help families with developmentally disabled children enjoy the summer’s best party – the fair! Butler Amusement, the carnival operator, has agreed to participate.

On Tuesday August 9 the Clark County fair will open as usual at 10:00. The rides will begin operating as usual at noon. BUT during the noon hour, on Tuesday only, half a dozen rides will operate in a sensory friendly mode. Speed, noise, and lights will be reduced.

This is a big deal! Planning for the annual fair starts the day after each year’s fair closes. Our request for these special accommodations was last minute – but it’s going to happen!

We are preparing a survey to gauge the level of interest from developmentally disabled families to support a request for more special features at the fair next year. When asked, please reply!

SPECIAL PRICES at the CLARK COUNTY FAIR

Online advanced ticket purchases offer significant savings on admission (save $2), rides, and parking. The tickets are good any day of the fair (August 5 – 14).

For example, carnival rides cost $3 to $5 per person. Instead of buying $1 coupons, we urge you to consider the likely savings of online advanced ticket purchases. An unlimited ride wristband costs $25 – $30 but with an online advanced purchase is only $22.

Go to http://www.clarkcofair.com to buy fair tickets online. (You can of course buy tickets at the gate.)

Then on Tuesday August 9 from 12:00 – 1:00 look for signs identifying the sensory friendly rides.

Go to their website for more information about the fair and to purchase advance tickets.
