Business Profile:


The new Super Shot Drop Tower gives 12 riders an "accelerated free fall." A magnetic braking system stops the station before it reaches the bottom of the 90-foot tower.

Always a fan favorite, racing pigs head for the finish line at the Evergreen State Fair.

Dana Geleynse, of Mount Vernon, competes in a fair bubble-gum-blowing contest.

The fair starts Thursday and runs through Sept. 3. Hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and the first Sunday; 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and the second Sunday; and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Labor Day, Sept. 3.

The fairgrounds are off Highway 2 in Monroe, just west of the Highway 522 interchange. From Interstate 5, take the Highway 2 exit in north Everett.

Traveler tips
On-site parking: $6 per day, no re-entry.

Community Transit runs buses to the fair from Everett, Snohomish and Gold Bar with extended hours along routes 270, 271 and 275.

Prices: $1.25 adults, 75 cents youth, 50 cents seniors. Information: www.communitytransit.org.

The fair offers many specials that vary day to day. Regular rates include:

Daily admission: $9 adults, $7 seniors 62 to 89 (free for 90 and older), $5 youths 6 to 15, and free for children up to 5.

Ride-all-day carnival wristbands: $30.

What's new :
While the Evergreen State Fair has many comfortable rituals — events and displays that families assume will return year after year — this year's fair also promises some novel offerings.

Seattle Sounders: Members of the men's soccer team, league champions in 2005, will appear at the fair 2-4 p.m. Saturday for soccer demonstrations, autograph signings and photo opportunities.

Bob Wolf's reindeer and zebras: When the Snohomish River overflowed last November, good Samaritans helped Wolf evacuate his exotic menagerie to the fairgrounds. As a thank you to the community, Wolf plans to bring two reindeer and four zebras to the fair for its 12-day duration, stabling them in the lean-to display between the goat and dairy barns. Wolf's other creatures — horses, cows and exotic birds and waterfowl — will stay home at Monroe Aquatic Nursery.

New carnival rides: Butler Amusements has a fresh five-ticket ride — the Super Shot Drop Tower, in which 12 passengers are harnessed into seats facing outward in a circle formation around a 90-foot tower. Then they're lifted to the top where, yeah, you guessed it, they're dropped for an "accelerated free fall" with triple-intense G-forces. On the Giant Pole Position Spinning Roller Coaster, seats painted like racecars spin as they race through the 55-foot-high coaster's three levels. For the family, the Mini Tea Cup features cars with steering wheels to control their spinning speeds, while the Jump Around offers bouncing dune buggies.

From French fries to diesel: All that cooking oil used to fry thousands of crispy fair treats — all those elephant ears, curly fries and funnel cakes — will be recycled during the fair by Standard Biodiesel. The company picks up used cooking oil at sports arenas, festivals and restaurants in nine counties, and converts it into biodiesel at a new plant in Arlington. All of the fair's tractors and other diesel equipment will be fueled with Standard's recycled products.

Centennial bricks: Next year marks the Evergreen State Fair's 100th anniversary, so the fair is selling commemorative bricks to be installed throughout the fairgrounds for the 2008 celebration. Special bricks will be available as remembrances for longtime fair exhibitors and events such as "first date at the fair" and "finding your mate at the fair." Laser-inscribed bricks will be sold in two sizes, for $50 and $100 each.

Free fun:
All-Alaskan Pig Races: Kids love to watch cute, young pigs dashing around and leaping over hurdles in Frontier Land, in the fair's southwest corner. Shows: weekdays 11 a.m., 1:30, 3 and 6 p.m.; weekends 11 a.m., 1:30, 3, 5 and 6:30 p.m.

Aztec Indian Dancers: A troupe wearing colorful traditional dress performs dances from the pre-Spanish-conquest era, in Frontier Land. Shows: 2 and 8 p.m. daily.

Bees: The Northwest District Beekeepers will display live beehives in the Display Hall and in an agricultural display tent just inside the West Gate.

Evergreen Country Idol: It's too late to enter, but fairgoers can cheer on semifinalists for the fair's sixth annual karaoke contest during nightly performances Thursday through Tuesday on the Family Fun Stage at 6 p.m. The finals will be 6 p.m. Tuesday. The winner will open the Keith Anderson/Josh Turner concert Aug. 30 and also receive $1,000.

Huntin' Wabbits Game: Find at least 20 of 30 pieces of bunny art — mostly framed prints and posters — scattered throughout the fair and qualify for prizes. Fairgoers may pick up rabbit maps and game cards to be stamped at each site.

International Lumberjack Show: Demonstrations of log rolling, pole climbing and other skills in Frontier Land. Shows: noon, 4 and 7 p.m. daily.

Petting farm: A henhouse, petting area and farmer-for-a-day activities such as milking are offered near the East Gate. The Imagine Children's Museum will visit Thursday and Aug. 30 to provide additional hands-on fun, and ParentMap will provide extra activities on Saturday and Sunday.

Chain-saw carvers: Chain-saw artists create totems and statues of bears, eagles, dolphins and other subjects in Frontier Land on the southern edge of the midway.

Sow and litter displays: A perennial favorite for families, with one or two massive mama pigs and swarms of newborn piglets in the swine barn.

Horses, pets and farm animals: It's easy to miss the horse barns and daily equestrian events because they're on the far north side of The Arena and the Grandstands. All the other animal barns and display rings — for dogs, sheep, rabbits, goats, cows, chickens and more — are in the fair's southeast area, near the East Gate. Highlights include 4-H cat costumes, at 2 p.m. Friday, and the Mini Horse Show, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 3.

All-day stage shows: The Family Fun Stage between the Grandstands and The Arena and the Comcast Courtyard Stage near the 4-H barn feature contests and acts, including magicians, barbershop singers, Elvis impersonations, pie-eating and bubble-gum-blowing contests, tap dancers and the Reptile Man. On many days, popular local country band Gerry Andahl & The Rough Riders plays at 5 p.m. on the Courtyard Stage.

Special events
Ice-sculpting demonstration: The fair's chain-saw artists switch mediums for a 1 p.m. Sunday show in Frontier Land.

Western Regional Clydesdale Show: A four-day show in The Arena, with hitch events and pulling contests. When: 6 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Washington Draft Horse and Mule Extravaganza: A one-day show in The Arena. When: 6 p.m. Monday.

Save some dough

A day at the fair can be pricey, especially for families with a taste for carnival rides and games. The fair offers many day-to-day specials, however.
Advanced sales: Discount admission tickets — which shave $1 or $2 off admission prices — are available at businesses throughout the county, including all QFC stores, through Sept. 2. Today is the last day to save $5 on ride-all-day carnival wristbands, available at limited locations including all Bartell Drug Stores. For a complete list: www.evergreenfair.org.
