Default Pensacola Fair

I do not understand why a 21 year vet would have to pay anything to get in but there is a free mens night, ladies night,cox appr. day??? This is one more event this Vet will never attend and the rest of you should feel the same and show them who we are!

you know when I read your post this morning it rubbed me the wrong way and I was not going to reply but I showed it to a coworker of mine who retired with 27 years in the Navy and he LOL.I have to call you out on this one Mr.Rodarts.When you take a dump I bet it stinks just like the rest of us, if you go to sandy sansing nissan do you just point at one and they give you the keys.

I to am a 21 year veteran and agree with Josey Wales. Kind of funny how some people think.

If they didn't give anyone a discount or FREE admission, that would be fine. The thing that grips me, and I believe the point of this thread,is theyhave a "Mens Day", and a "Ladies Day" which are free. Then they have a "Military Appreciation Day" with a $4 discount. Not much appreciation in my opinion. I did 20 years.

I agree that it would be nice to give vets free entrance to the fair, but also realize that because of our town, the fair would lose a ton of money on that night. I have a better solution. Let's not go to the fair at all! Talk to the local businesses and see what they think of the fair. All that money goes to one family and to an out of town group of carnie's. The fair is the worst thing for our economy right now. People will spend this month's rent and food check for dirty rides, rip-off games and greasy food. Doesn't make sense to me.

See you on the midway.
