Deerfield Fair — 2 Comments

  1. I was a bit “put out” we come to the fair every year as I am sure alot of other people also do too. This year I tried to purchase my tickets via the website. I was charged and extra dollar (I bought 2 = $2 more). When we arrived at the gate, the woman stated “she hoped they would work” that wasnt a good sign….no they did not so we had to go back to a line to get tickets. 1) it completely wiped out the fact that we were not planning on standing in a line 2) I got to pay $2 more to do it that way? Thats so wrong. It may not be a lot of money but how many others were taken for the extra money? The gate told me there was nothing they could do about it. Something should have been in place for this
