Don't forget Monday is Senior Citizen Day. All seniors showing proof of age 65 or older are admitted free. It is also Red Hat Society Day at the Races. Gather at the Grandstand during the Harness Races.
I have to post this here as a result of several not nice emails I have been receiving regarding the price increase for admission this year. I have NOTHING to do with determining the price. This is the UNOFFICIAL site and I simply pass the information along. I have no influence on the fair board. If you want to complain about it go to the OFFICIAL website. I'll even give you the link www.bloomsburgfair.com. I WILL NOT respond to any more emails complaining about the price. If you have a question or something else you'd like to discuss by all means feel free to email me and I will get back to you. Again, I am sorry for having to post this but it was necessary.
Many have been asking. You can find the Wheel Chair and Scooter Rental information here.
The Midway Reports have begun and will be updated daily. You can view them at Midway Reports. Remember, some nights it is very late when I get home so they may not be uploaded till the morning. However, I am going to try taking my laptop with me and possibly doing a progressive report throughout the day. Check back here for more on that.
The Barton House Schedule has been added to the free entertainment list. This information can be found under Free Stage Entertainment. Remember, the free stage entertainment section includes information on all free attractions including those not located on the free stage.
As you enter the Horticulture Hall for 2012 you will notice many changes.
The walls have been covered with vertical ruff cut hemlock boards to create an environmentally friendly outdoor look.
The entrance display will feature a 4' clock made out of fresh flowers with flower and plant accents throughout the display.
The fountain has been raised 36" and completely refurbished and a new fair sign placed above it.
The old metal pipe railing has been removed and a beautiful, decorative wrought iron fence has been installed.
The garden club displays are new all together in the same area in the back of the building.
The green astro turf has been removed and painted shelves placed along the walls to improve the presentation of the cut flowers and plants.
A stage has been added and will feature artisans demonstrating their talents of floral design, plant lectures and more.
3 more vendors have been added to the building, a Bonsai specialist, a nursery, and candles and potpourri.
Bistro tables and chairs have been added around the fountain.
4 Professional landscapers will be setting up displays.

More information has been added to the tentative schedule for the free stage and other locations throughout the grounds. This information can be found under Free Stage Entertainment.

The price of admission regrettably has been raised due to the losses and damages caused by last year's flooding. Admission at the gate is now $8.00. Advance ticket prices are $7.00 for a single ticket or $48.00 for 8 tickets (works out to $6.00 per ticket)
Ryan Pelton will not be performing on the fair's free stage this year as he will be in the middle of filming for an indie film about Elvis.
