DALLAS — The Luzerne County Fair is back, officially opening up on Wednesday.
After taking a year off during the beginnings of the pandemic, the fair is back this year, and runs through Sunday.
If you were thinking of heading up to Dallas to check it out, here’s what you need to know:
Tickets include parking, entrance to the fairgrounds, all of the ground acts and stage acts like the Great Lakes Timber Show and the 3 Ring Super Circus, along with admission to the rides. Kids under 2 get in for free.
