6 things to do the last day of York Fair: Fireworks, free concerts, more
After nine days of carnival rides, music, fried food and fun, the 250th York Fair comes to a close on Sunday.
That means there's still one more day to catch a few attractions you might have missed, and now, you can do them at a discounted price.
Sunday's fair admission is half-off: $4 for adults and $2 for college students and children 6-18. Last Blast Deggeller Ride-All-Day wristbands will also be sold for $18.
Here are six attractions you won't want to miss on the last day of the fair.
Racing Pigs and Dogs
Sunday is the last day to see little pigs and dogs race around the track. Races are scheduled for 11:45 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Royal Hanneford Circus
This crowd favorite will feature acts including Chinese acrobats, a Russian cat act and the flying trapeze. The circus, which for the first time this year has been held outside under the big top, will perform three shows Sunday: 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
From pig races and petting zoos to livestock displays and the goat mountain, the York Fair has it all when it comes to animal exhibits. But the fair has never had an animal show quite like this. The Marvelous Mutts dog team, all adopted from shelters and rescues, entertains audiences with tricks and stunts three times a day behind Old Main. Sunday show times are 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Radio Stage Show
Country singer Chris Janson, known for his top five Country Airplay single "Buy Me A Boat," will perform a free concert on the Radio Stage at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Free Grandstand Concert
At 5 p.m. Sunday, the Dover Area High School Band and Chorale Groups will open for 2011 "American Idol" finalist and country singer Lauren Alaina on the grandstand stage. Alaina, known for the songs "Georgia Peaches" and "Like My Mother Does," will perform her free show at 7 p.m. as part of the 250th York Fair Closing Ceremony.
The 250th York Fair will end with a bang Sunday night, literally. For the first time in the last 10 or 15 years (at least), Zambelli Fireworks will set off a fireworks show from the infield at dusk. The best seats to view the fireworks are in the grandstand or anywhere outside the track.
