PHOENIX - It’s fall and that means it’s time for the Arizona State Fair! Phoenix police are offering some tips to make the best of your fair experience.
The fair will run from Oct. 11 to Nov. 3 at 19th Avenue and McDowell Road. It will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
Police are warning people not to park on any dirt area or you may get towed. Hundreds of vehicles are towed each year near the fairgrounds because of illegal parking, according to Phoenix police.
On the State Fair website , there are parking lots listed from $5 to a $20 VIP lot.
The State Capitol Parking Lot, on Washington Street, also offers free parking on Fridays starting at 6 p.m. and on the weekends at 10 a.m.
Police say another concern at the fair is lost children.
They compared a quick child to a “fleet footed cheetah” when entranced with the “wonderment of the fair.”
Police advise if you lose your child to notify fair representatives or the Arizona Department of Public Safety at the Southwest corner of the Coliseum to resolve the problem quickly.
With these tips in mind, a great time is sure to be had at the fair!
