The State Fair of Louisiana is back!  Starting today, you can get the whole fair experience in the area near Hirsch Memorial Coliseum.  The rides, exhibits, and most of all - the food are all waiting for you!

Before you round up your family or friends, make sure you check out all of the deals and discounts.  That way, you can save a couple of bucks to use later on a funnel cake.  Most of the deals count on buying your tickets early.  You can get a break on one-day passes, the "Pay One Price" (pop) tickets, and "Fun Passes."  The latter choices give you the option to pay for your admission and unlimited ride armbands, with the fun pass option doing the same thing for 15 days.

Don't forget that Wednesdays thru Fridays from 10:00AM to 3:00PM, Parking and Gate Admission are free!  Each Thursday, enjoy $2.00 parking, $2.00 gate admission, and $2.00 for each carnival ride.  If you pick a Wednesday, or on Election for your fair experience, you'll get in for $5.00 and a carnival ride armband will only set you back $20.00.

You can check out the all of the deals here, but don't forget to scroll all the way down for deals on the LRCA Rodeo finals on November 1st as well.

The Louisiana State Fair opens today and runs through November 11th.
