Being first through the main gate of the 2018 New York State Fair made the day for one family that just wanted to give the youngest member a good start for the festivities.
Gates opened at 7 a.m. with buildings opening at 10 a.m. River Gallup brought his 2-year-old son Mason and the rest of his family to the main gate by 6:30 a.m.
“I figure I’d get him here before there’s a lot of people here, so he can see everything first and he seems to like it so far,” Gallup said. “We’re here and we’re ready to have a good day.”
Many families are planning to make new memories at the NYS Fair with plenty of specialty days ahead.
Day one is Governor’s Day and also Dollar Day — making entry to the Fair only $1.
