It's a big year for the Erie County Fair! It's celebrating 150 years in Hamburg!

Some call it the "Best 12 days of summer" and it just may be with all new fair foods, music, entertainment, rides and the animals we all love to see.

You can snack on new treats like a donut bacon grilled cheese when the gates officially open Wednesday, August 8th at noon. For the rest of the fair, the 9th through Sunday the 19th, gates will be open at 9 a.m. and close at 10 p.m.

To celebrate 150 years, the fair will have fireworks every night at 9:30 p.m.

Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and children 12 and under are free. You can also buy discounted tickets at TOPS grocery stores.

Channel 7 day is Tuesday, August 14th where you can get in for just $5!
