A second free PNE admission day has been added this year. Today, before 1 p.m., admission to the Fair at the PNE will be free.
The reason for the second day of free admission day is in response to the power outage that took place this past weekend. The power outage hurt gate attendance during the weekend and this will provide a significant spike in attendance number. Further, it provides an opportunity for those affected by the outage to get in the fair once again without having to pay the admission price.
Having the free day on a work day will most likely mean that those that usually attend on the weekend will not be able to take advantage of the promotion.
