State Farm Fair returns
The Hawaii State Farm Fair returns to its Kapolei site (corner of Farrington Highway and Fort Barrett Road) this week with the usual fare -- rides, games and food.
Wristband specials return this year on Kraft Night and Pepsi Day. To take advantage of the $13 all-you-can-ride bracelet, rideaholics need to bring a wrapper from Nabisco cookies or crackers, Cabri Sun juice drink, Kool-Aid beverage, Post cereal or Kraft Mac & Cheese to the fairgrounds on opening night.
Can't make it that day?
Pepsi Day offers the same deal on July 30, but instead of bringing a wrapper, bring an empty Pepsi can. The wristband is good for unlimited rides from noon to 6 p.m. and admission into the grounds.
Fifteen-dollar wristbands are also available, for information, log on to www.ekfernandez.com.
