“The Mega Pass offers gift givers a chance to wrap up an entire carnival and place it in their favorite fairgoer’s hands this holiday season,” said Illinois State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick. “The 2012 Illinois State Fair Mega Pass is a great gift at a great price and it will bring a big smile as well as big thrills to whoever receives it.”

The reduced-rate Mega Pass holiday promotion will be available through Dec. 21 and includes a free, state fair lanyard. Mega Passes can be purchased in person at the Emmerson Building, online at www.illinoisstatefair.info, or by calling (217) 782-0775.
