Fairgoers could win a lifetime pass by sharing a special fair story

The New York State Fair is offering the prize for a new contest

TOWN OF GEDDES (WSYR-TV) - Walk down the edge of Chevy Court and ask a simple question...do you have a great fair story?

You may find the couple on a first date or the childhood friends who are reuniting on the Midway after 40 years apart.

There's been a wedding on the Ferris Wheel and countless stories of growing families returning every year.

Now, sharing a special story in a video will earn someone a lifetime pass to the New York State Fair. The challenge is part of a new contest this year.

Competitors need to upload a video telling your "Great Fair story" -- what the Fair means to you, your favorite memories, what you like best about it, etc. A fair spokesman says the focus can be on just about anything...fair related, of course.

Fair workers will accept entries until Sunday, September 3. The winner will be chosen on Labor Day.

Keep in mind, they may choose your story to make a promotional video.
