State Fair adds additional parking options

With concerns over wet weather making parking difficult, the State Fair in Grand Island will be adding additional parking.

State Fair Executive Director Lori Cox announced expanded shuttle parking availability to help ease parking on grass areas that could be compromised by the wet weather.

The State Fair staff recommends using off-site parking and using the free express shuttle services.

The free services will pick up at seven locations around Grand Island and deliver Fairgoers right to the gates. Primary service is ADA accessible, however, if additional buses are necessary those buses may not have ADA availability
