Heat inspires extra day of free fair admission for seniors
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The New York State Fair is offering an extra day of free admission for older visitors because of this week’s heat wave.
Fair officials say they added a third day of free attendance for adults age 60 and older on Thursday, when cooler weather is expected.
Temperatures were in the mid-90s in Syracuse on Tuesday and were expected to hit 90 degrees Wednesday.
Acting Fair Director Troy Waffner said high heat and humidity can especially hard on seniors.
