31 discount carnival ride tickets remain for Douglas County Fair
Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union is sponsoring the discounted single-session unlimited wristband rides
ALEXANDRIA — Only 31 tickets remain for steeply discounted carnival rides at the Douglas County Fair which runs Aug. 17-20.
Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union is sponsoring the discounted rides and originally made 200 available. Almost all the tickets have already been snapped up.
The way they work is this: On the dcmnfair.com website, you can buy a pack of four one-session wristband tickets for $50. That means unlimited rides for a four-hour period for whoever is wearing the wristband. The same price for four wristbands purchased at the fair is $120.
Each wristband is good for one of the following wristband times:
- Wednesday, Aug. 17: 1-5 p.m.
- Thursday, Aug. 18: 1-5 p.m. and 6-10 p.m.
- Friday, Aug. 19: 1-5 p.m.
- Saturday, Aug. 20: 1-5 p.m. and 6-10 p.m.
The tickets for the wristbands must be picked up at Affinity Plus at 418 3rd Ave. E., No. 108 in Alexandria. Tickets are then swapped for wristbands at the fair at the carnival ticket booth.
If you miss out on the $50 wristbands, a $75 four-pack will go on sale online starting Aug. 1. Single wristbands will also be available for $25 starting Aug. 1.
