Just over a month from now, the Hamburg Fairgrounds will be busy with activity from the Erie County Fair (you can already smell the scent of funnel cakes). Even though we're still a few weeks away, now is the time to act upon some great savings.

According to WIVB, The Erie County Fair has teamed up with Tops Friendly Markets to offer discounted gate admission to the fair.

Adult admission will drop from $12 to $7 and seniors (60 or older) admission will drop from $9 to $5.

Discount vouchers can be bought now through August 6th at participating Tops; you can redeem the vouchers for the discounted tickets at any gate during the fair.

You can save on classic carnival rides as well, for weekday one-price ride days from August 7th through 9th and August 12th through 16th. Those $25 vouchers are also available at participating Tops through August 6th.
