With the new quarter already underway, the reality of fast approaching assignments and deadlines are probably sinking in. However, there’s still time to squeeze in a little extra fun before classes get too crazy! If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to spring break and in our city, the Atlanta Fair will be open until April 2nd.
Located in Turner Field’s Gray lot along I-75/I-85, the fair opens at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and at 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Entrances after 10 p.m. everyday will not be permitted.
Entrance fees range between $3.00-$8.00.
Tickets for rides cost $1.25 each. Rides may require 2-5 tickets per person. Unlimited ride armbands can be purchased for $25 and are good for the whole day.
Please note the ticket prices vary by the day and time, so check out the Atlanta Fair website here for more information regarding prices.
For anyone driving, parking will be available for a fee in the outlying parking lots around Turner Field. If you wish to use public transit, MARTA routes 32, 49 and 55 will take you to Turner Field from Five Points Station.
Keep spring break alive for a little longer by checking out the fair. There will be plenty of rides, food and games to enjoy!
