From the Mississippi State Fair Commission:

Lester Spell, Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce and State Fair Commission Chairman, along with Mike Williams, of North American Midway Entertainment, have announced that the 150th Mississippi State Fair will be extended one extra day for Mississippi fairgoers to enjoy.

The extended day will be known as $2 MONDAY, offering fairgoers discounted prices on admission ($2), parking ($2), rides ($2), corndogs ($2), and other discounted food items offered by vendors. Due to the excessive rainfall across the State of Mississippi and in the Jackson-Metro Area, the Mississippi Fair Commission and North American Midway will extend the Fair through Monday, October 19, 2009, to allow the public one more day to enjoy the wonderful sights and sounds, exciting rides, and delicious food.

“Due to factors beyond our control with the weather this past week and favorable weather in the forecast, we decided to extend the State Fair through Monday and offer a great deal to the public for $2 MONDAY. I would like to thank the public for its overwhelming support and North American Midway for its willingness to continue for one more day of fun and excitement,” said Spell.

Billy Orr, Fair Commission Executive Director, added, “I would like to invite everyone who hasn’t made it to the Fair yet or wants to make a repeat visit, to come enjoy the good weather this weekend and our $2 MONDAY special.”

The Fair will open its gates at the regular scheduled times for Saturday and Sunday, and will open at 11:00 a.m. on Monday. For Monday, parking and admission will be free from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. After 1:00 p.m., parking, admission, rides, and all corndogs will be $2 each for $2 MONDAY.

For the 58th year, the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition is springing up at the corner of Coral Way and Southwest 107th Avenue. Laborers already have been at work assembling food kiosks, game booths and 90 midway rides for opening day Thursday.

The fair is introducing some new attractions this year to lure customers.

Saturday, local youngsters between the ages of 9 and 18 who fancy themselves the next Kelly Clarkson or Clay Aiken can put themselves at the mercy of judges for the new Tween Idol singing competition.

Participants must prove their vocal chops before a panel that includes Miami’s Syesha Mercado, a finalist on the seventh season of American Idol and Grammy-winning singer Albita.

Those chosen as finalists will return March 29 to compete for a trip to Los Angeles to see American Idol live, an appearance on WSVN-Fox 7’s Deco Drive and have the chance to sing the fair’s jingle, Be There, in next year’s ad campaign. Contestants can register at or
