OLYMPIA - To celebrate our mascot, FireFly the Carousel Horse and our theme, "Whimsical Nights and Carousel Rides", the Thurston County Fair is offering free Carousel Rides every day of the Fair! All you need to do is enter the Fair each day before 12 noon and receive a free ticket to ride the Carousel that day. For more details, call the Fair Office at (360) 786-5453, or visit our website at www.co.thurston.wa.us/fair.

The 2010 Thurston County Fair welcomes Kevin Wolfe, stage hypnotist back this year! He will perform two shows daily, starting Thursday August 5th through Sunday August 8th. He performs his fast-paced, high energy show that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats from the beginning of the performance to the end and is a favorite here at the Fairgrounds. Come on out and see for yourself! For specific show times and location, please contact the fair office today.
