The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is the latest organization to use the Pokémon GO augmented reality game to catch a boost for its business.

Organizers of the Fair at the PNE announced today that admission on opening day this Saturday will be free for the first hour of operations for Pokémon GO players. From 11 am to noon, players simply have to show their Pokémon GO app on their smartphone to pass through the fairground gates.

Additionally, there will be many Pokéstops on the fairgrounds, and organizers also plan on dropping numerous lures throughout the day.
