Discounted Mega Pass available for $50 through Dec. 22

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – If you are searching for the perfect stocking stuffer to give a young thrill-seeker this holiday season, consider an Illinois State Fair Mega Pass.  The Illinois Department of Agriculture is offering the 2011 Illinois State Fair Mega Pass at a reduced rate of $50, a $15 savings, through Wednesday, Dec. 22.

The Mega Pass gives youngsters access to more than 50 Carnival Midway and Adventure Village rides.  It is good for all ten days of the state fair, plus Preview Night.

“The Mega Pass is your ticket to unlimited fun during the 2011 Illinois State Fair,” Illinois State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick said.  “You would be hard pressed to find another gift that offers 11 consecutive days of excitement and fits in a stocking.”

The reduced-rate Mega Pass promotion will be available through Dec. 22 and includes a free, state fair lanyard. Mega Passes can be purchased in person at the Emmerson Building, online at www.illinoisstatefair.info, or by calling (217) 782-0775.

The Emmerson Building is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is located on Main Street inside the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

The pass is not valid for admission to the fairgrounds itself or rides on the Skyglider and Giant Slide.  The 2011 Illinois State Fair will be held Aug. 12 - 21.
