The weather was Overcast. I wore shorts and a t-shirt. Costumes are welcome and encouraged, check if there is a theme happening on the weekend you go..
The weather was hot and sunny. I wore a t-shirt and capris but you can most assuredly dress up!.
The weather was sunny and warm. I wore sleeveless top, capri's, and sun hat.
The preferred parking is not worth the $5...it was about a quarter mile walk from the regular parking.
The weather was humid!. I wore shorts, t shirt, but MANY people who are attending are dressed in period specific costume. It would be fun to do but you would be HOT!.
The weather was Sunny. I wore T-shirt and athletic shorts.
If you don't mind a bit of a walk there's free parking just up the road north of the fair grounds.
If you have special dietary needs, you can call the main office and get food pre-approved to bring in, however check the menu online before you make any decisions. I am vegan (no meat, dairy, eggs, or animal byproducts) and I managed to find several options to eat. The variety of food at this event is great!
Vegetarian food available: I had portabello mushroom sandwich,cheese pizza,nachos
$5 to park in a big grassy lot. There was more people there than I expected. They have a pretty good system but count the rows of cars on your walk to the entrance so finding your car at the end of the day is easier.
All of the rides are 2 dls and up, and is cash only. Bring a lot of cash for the attractions, food and souvenirs. It is so fun to see people dressed up, if you have costumes bring them along! My 3 yr old daughter was dressed as Princess Merida (Brave) and she was so happy when people commented on her outfit and called her Princess.
We park on the free lot. The walk is not too long, there was plenty of space and it was super easy to get in and out.
The weather was a little cold for the summer, but enjoyable.. I wore jeans, sweatshirt and flats. I'd recommend tennis shoes for comfort. You'll walk a lot and is dirt all around..
