Best day to go with kids to the Fair: Half price

Many of you wonder which is the best day to go with children to the fair. If you want to get the most out of your money, the best day will undoubtedly be the day with discounts on attractions.

Not all fair attractions will have such a succulent discount and long queues may discourage more than one, but if you want to save a little and enjoy a lot this year should be the last day of Fair.

The average price without discount is usually between 3.5€ and 5€.
