Also included for the $1 dollar feature will be the rides on the Wade Shows Midway from 2014.  Unfortunately, fair parking will not be $1 dollar, the cost for parking is $5 dollars.  In addition to the great $1 dollar deals on admission and rides, the New York State Fair will include a special parade and all to take place at 10:30 am at Chevy Court in honor of working men and women who make New York the Empire State.  Prepare for a free concert with pop star Nick Jonas at 6 p.m., and fireworks sponsored by National Grid at dusk to close out the 2015 Fair.

The final day of the Fair will be wrapped up with a spectacular lineup of free concert entertainment. The line up begins with Pop group Fifth Harmony which performs Friday evening. Saturday, soul superstars The Jacksons perform, with classic rock icon Steve Miller and his band on Sunday night.
