Went for the first time this year. The lighting was impressive. But let me tell ya...the traffic was horrendous!!! We entered from S. Park Ave., we were in line, on the street, for 2 and a half hours waiting to get in. NO LIE. Watched a dvd with grandkids to amuse ourselves, but a lot of cars left before getting... More

I liked every thing about the casino. But I missed the weekend bands also I wish I could win a few more times at the casino and you had more free plays more often.

Wife drags me here every year. It's actually pretty good. It's surprisingly busy and difficult to get a parking space who would've guessed? Cost 10 bucks to get in The vendors here are pretty nice.

What could be better than walking free and people watching. It's all there at the Fair. Maple ice cream cones, birch beer pop, all kinds of pizza and chicken. Plus the new and improved gadgets of every kind. Worth the price to get in.

I enjoyed the fair - the 4-H animals would have to be the highlight of the fair of course and the fact that some of the farmers were actually available to chat about the different animals and that there were so many baby animals there was wonderful.

This was an excellent place to hold the World horseshoe tournament this year! It was easy to navigate, the concessions people were friendly, and there was a very extensive menu to order from. All of those things helped when we spent 6 days there with various members of the family pitching. There were multiple restrooms located on both sides, and... More

Erie County Fair is always great. Can be pricey. Great variety and entertainment. Fantastic food and I love the animals. Lots of seating areas for family this year. Really clean.
