Pay the ‘Fair Time’ Experience Forward

 

HURON, SD - Help others embrace the feeling of ‘Fair Time’ with the 4th Annual Pay it Forward Day at the 2019 South Dakota State Fair. The SD State Fair is partnering with businesses and organizations to provide free admission to the fair for those in need, as well as to individuals selected at random on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019. 

 

“It’s rewarding to continue Pay it Forward Day. We cannot thank the businesses that purchase the admission passes to give out enough. Last year, nearly 600 passes were handed out,” said Peggy Besch, SD State Fair manager.
