Reading for Rides gives kids chance to earn free rides at Utah County Fair
The Utah County Fair may sound like your typical fair, but this year it is adding some not-so-typical fun with events like pig wrestling.
The fair will be held from Aug. 15-18 at the newly remodeled Spanish Fork Fairgrounds, with free parking and admission.
For children 12 and younger, there is an opportunity to receive three free carnival ride tickets through the Reading for Rides program. Between April 1 and Aug. 15, children just need to read three books and write a summary about each book, then have an adult initial it and the tickets are theirs.
Other exciting events include a tractor pull, car show, talent show, demolition derby, Miss Utah County Pageant, dutch oven cook-off and more.
