Tickets for the Fairgrounds — which can be purchased online or in-person — are $5 for seniors and children under 13 and $10 for everyone else.

The Carnival, located on the east side of the fairgrounds, is open 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Friday. The attraction runs 10 a.m.-midnight on Saturdays and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $25 and include unlimited access to all rides.

As with years past, the rodeo also features a star studded musical line-up, opening with Toby Keith Thursday night at 7 p.m. Tickets for that show are still available, with prices starting at $39 for nosebleeds.
