(*Clears throat, begins singing like an angel*) Iiiiiii don't want a lot for Christmas. There's just one thing I need. I don't care about the presents ... underneath the Christmas tree. I just want one of my own, more than you could ever know. Make my wish come true! All I want for Christmas ... is a Wisconsin State Fair 11-day Fair Fun Pass.
Indeed, I don't want a lot for Christmas – but there is just one thing I need. (*background singers croon "giant sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiayiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide"*) And it's a Wisconsin State Fair 11-day Fair Fun Pass, now on sale for its lowest price possible at just $99. Yes, valued at $198, an 11-day Fair Fun Pass will cost just half that amount during the holiday season, making the perfect stocking stuffer for that special someone on your list ... or just yourself. We don't judge.
The Fair Fun Pass gets you into next year's Wisconsin State Fair throughout the entire run of the summer spectacular, all festive and aglow once again starting Aug. 1-11. That means, with just one pass, you get access to all eleven days of racing pigs, barns full for oh-so-adorable animals, K-9 sports, SpinCity amusement park excitement, live music performances and – of course – feast-worthy foods and Sporkie nominees, if your Mariah Carey inspiration is more "One Sweet Day." (Or, considering those delicious deep-fried caloric intakes, "Heartbreaker.")
In case that wasn't enough, don't forget about us – and by "us," I mean the special bonuses that come with the Fair Fun Pass. That's right: In addition to giant Cream Puff-sized savings, a pass also comes with a special 2024 Super Fan lanyard along with a commemorative 2024 Wisconsin State Fair sticker, giving you some memorabilia to go along with the memories you'll make next summer on the grounds.
Even if you're not asking for much this Christmas – not even wishing for snow – you might want to get your hands on some of the Wisconsin State Fair's other holiday deals too. For instance, if you're not made of Mariah Carey Christmas song money – and even if you are – you'll want to snag one of the Fair's Bargain Books, featuring even more deals scattered all around State Fair Park. And for savings on top of savings, those Bargain Books are a bargain in their own right, only costing $5 at the State Fair website.
If Santa Claus won't make you happy with a toy on Christmas Day, try SpinCity ticket packs , discounted WonderFair Wheel rides and even vouchers for six-packs of iconic Cream Puffs costing just $22. Or try one of the State Fair's holiday themed deals that'll have you belting out high notes of happiness: Elf Pack and Santa's Sack, the former bundling four tickets and a three-pack of Cream Puffs down the chimney. As for the latter, Santa's Sack wraps six tickets, a six-pack of puffs, a Bargain Book and 50 SpinCity tickets into one sweet sweet fantasy of present. (Oh wait, that's a different popular Mariah Carey hit.) These deals and you: You belong together. (Dang it, that's a different song too.)
Anyways, you don't need to be an iconic singing diva with a legendary sing-along Christmas classic to get these deals or to enjoy these Fair festivities. All you have to do is head over to the Wisconsin State Fair's website and order your discounted Fair Fun Pass. So make my wish true – because all I want for Christmas (*pulls off unbelievable vocal run totally in tune*) is you ... and by you, I mean an 11-day Fair Fun Pass. And for nine months from now – with its State Fair fun, longer days and warmer temperatures – to already be here again.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
