ORIGINAL POST: Can you believe it? It’s already October and it’s already time for The Big Fresno Fair. The fair opens its gates on Wednesday, so it’s probably time we start giving away some concert tickets, don’tcha think?
Here’s how this is going to work: We have a pair of tickets to every concert this year and some of them could be yours. To enter, just comment below and tell us the three shows you’d like to see (in order). If you don’t include a wish list, your entry won’t be valid. We’ll pick four random winners each day, starting today at 3:30 p.m., until all the tickets are gone. So get in quick for the most chances.
The first winners will have first choice of tickets. If you win and the tickets you want are already gone, I’ll e-mail you and see what’s next on your want list. So be sure to include a valid e-mail address. All the official rules are on the jump, as is the list of concerts. Good luck!
