Getting Around & Seeing the Fairgrounds by MSF Staffer - TCD
Category:Attractions & Exhibits
It's a nice way to get back and forth from the North end of the Fairgrounds. You can get on at Dan Patch Ave. between the Butterfly House & Grandstand Plaza and get off on Murphy Ave. near the Pet Center and vice versa. Worth the ticket if you've got tired feet or exhausted kids!
Another great way to get around & see the sights. The gondolas run East & West. Get on near the Agriculture Horticulture Building and get off on Dan Patch Ave. near Heritage Square and back again. Again worth the price of the ticket, especially on very crowded days.
The Trolleys are a nice way to get back and forth to the North End as well. You could get on at Visitors Plaza on Dan Patch Ave. and take it as far North as the Pet Center on Murphy Ave. and back again. Best part? FREE!
You don't get AROUND the Fairgrounds but you sure get a chance to SEE all of the Fairgrounds. It's a fun way to check everything out - sometimes you find something you missed!

The race track
I miss the stock car races. These were a family tradition. Remember when they had snowmobile racing in the winter also.
The Mexican Village was a great place to shop every year you could find great deals. The Bazaar is just not the same.
Peter's Weiners stand in the East Room
It was a family tradition to stop at in the East Room of the Grand stand for lunch. Remember when you could get a hot dog for a dime & a Coke for nickel?
Camping at the fair
Yes you can still camp at the fair but unfortunately our family no longer does. I was part of the four generations that camped at the State Fair. Oh The memories
