Little Rock, Arkansas – As the Arkansas State Fair enters its last weekend, fair officials said that over 330,000 people have visited the grounds throughout the previous eight days.

A minimum of 54,978 visitors were present on Friday thanks to the almost ideal weather forecast.

“We’ve had a great eight days of the fair so far,” interim General Manager Tiffany Wilkerson said. “We are looking forward to finishing the fair with a strong weekend of attendance.”

Megan Moroney and Blanco Brown, two well-known country music artists, will play on the Lotto’s Main Stage on Saturday.

Additionally, the fair is celebrating “Entergy Day,” giving all Entergy employees who present a legitimate employment ID a $2 discount on gate entrance for themselves and up to four guests.

Additionally, the fair will grant $3.00 admission to Scouts, FFA, FCLA, and 4-H members up until 5:00 p.m.
