The fair booster tickets will be sold individually for $6 each, a 25 percent savings from the regular daytime gate admission price for adults.
Jeremy Parsons, Clay County Fair manager, said he expects 2012 to be an excellent year for advance tickets sales because of the great lineup of entertainers and activities for this year's fair.
"People will want to purchase the advance tickets this year, especially if they plan to attend the various concerts and events. The fair advance tickets
represent a substantial savings for fair-goers," Parsons said. "I encourage people to
buy advance sale tickets."
Individuals and businesses may take advantage of the savings by purchasing their tickets from fair advance ticket locations or a fair advance sales
representative prior to 5 p.m. - or earlier, as many of the area locations will have the tickets picked up before then, and may be back in Spencer by that time - Friday, Sept. 7.
The Clay County Fair ticket office will sell booster tickets until 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7.
More than 60 individuals and businesses are working in cooperation with the Clay County Fair and Spencer Chamber of Commerce to sell the tickets in Spencer and several surrounding communities.
Spencer locations where the advance tickets are on sale include: Audio Video Connection; Bank of America; Bomgaars, Brandon Dale Guitar Instruction, Clay County Auditor, Clay County Fair Administration Office, Clay County Fair Grandstand Ticket Office, Community State Bank and Insurance, Design Masters Salon and Day Spa, Fareway, Farm Bureau-Clay County, Farmers Trust and Savings Bank, HyVee, JC Penny, Northwest Bank North and South Branches, Southpark Mall, Spencer Municipal Hospital Gift Shop, Spencer Chamber of Commerce, St. Luke Lutheran Home, State Bank of Spencer, Telco Triad Credit Union, US Bank, Walgreens and White Drug.
