Win Tickets to the Puyallup Fair, 'Get Your Happy On!'

Patch is giving away dozens of tickets to the Puyallup Fair. Just sign up for a free email newsletter below for a chance to win.

We've heard the questions: What's been missing in my life these past few months? How can I put an exclamation point on my summer? And can that exclamation point include fried food on a stick?

Here at Patch, we have your answer. Better still, we'll give it to you for free.

Sign up for a Patch newsletter today and you will be entered to win one of dozens of free pairs of tickets to the Puyallup Fair, which runs Sept. 7-23. Even better, if you tell us why we should send your whole family, you'll get a chance to win the Patch Family Pack: 

• four fair tickets (kids 5 and under are free, by the way)

• a Patch tote bag to hold those fair souvenirs

• assorted Patch goodies such as magnets, pens and balloons

• and a story and photo of you and your family on Kirkland Patch. 

Here's how: Simply fill out the form for a chance to win a pair of tickets. If you want the family pack, write us a note in the comments section at the end of this story explaining in 200 words or less why Patch should send you and your family to the state's biggest fair. 

Each Thursday for the next three weeks, through Sept. 13, we'll hand out one pair of tickets and one family pack to lucky winners from Kirkland. Winners will be notified by email. 

See you at the Puyallup!

Here's the fine print (click on the attached PDF for complete official rules):

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.

Families, remember if you'd like to enter to win a four-pack of tickets, tell us in the comments on this story why your family should go to the Puyallup Fair on Patch. The first round of winners will be announced Thursday. Good luck!

If it's not too late, we would love to go! As recent transplants to Washington (moved here for work), we haven't had much opportunity to actually get out and explore the best of Washington yet. And Puyallup Fair looks to be amazing!

Steven, Welcome to Kirkland and Washington state! What state did you move from? The Puyallup Fair IS amazing! We'll put you in the drawing for next week -- you'll have a chance at one of two family four-packs. Just be sure to use the form above to sign up for the newsletter. And we'll do our best here at Patch to get you acquainted with all things Kirkland.

We moved up here from San Francisco. I love the Patch - I subscribe to my hometowns version and look forward to this one!

We have never been to the Puyallup Fair. Would love to go!

Wonderful! Glad to have you in the community. Greg Johnston is your local editor for Kirkland. He's on a well-deserved break, so I'm just filling in. Be sure to drop him a line and say hi.

The Puyallup Fair has been our annual getaway for years. We would love to go this year, but money is tight with our first son born in January. Now 8 months old he would love the sights, especially the animals. His 14 year old sister, always loves the fair & good times. Thank you for the chance! Dustin Logan

My twins would love going to the fair! With one income we can't enjoy extra activities. Thanks for the chance to win!
