Doin’ the Puyallup with Patch

Thanks to the Roberts family — who won a family four-pack last week — and five other families who won tickets after they signed up for a Mercer Island Patch Newsletter in late August and September.

Have you gorged on scones and French fries, whirled and twirled yourself sick on rides, and checked out the amazing products that were grown, raised or made by fellow Washingtonians?

Thanks to the generosity of the folks at the Puyallup Fair, Patch was happy to give away 280 tickets this month to give readers a chance at all that and more.

That's where Nick and Denise Roberts and their children (pictured) headed this past weekend. The Shorewood Heights residents recently moved to Mercer Island from Surprise, AZ this summer and said their visit to the State Fair would be their first.

"Ferris Wheel!" shouted out 4-year-old Emma, as her brother Ethan, 8, and Emma, 6, jumped and laughed in the bright afternoon sunshine near their home on Friday.

Winners in our final drawing late on Friday have also won a pair of tickets for the Puyallup Fair, ending on Sunday, Sept. 23: Monica Burstein, Sue Peyou, Petra Jennings, Jerri Givens-Neely and Morrene Jacobson.

We’d love to see your photos and hear about your trips to the fair, so be sure to post in “Pics & Clips,” or even write a blog post. Or just tell us in the comments what you loved about the fair this year.

We’ve wrapped up our contest, but the fair runs through Sept. 23. So even if you didn’t win tickets with Patch, you can still enjoy the last of the summer weather and take in some entertainment. You’ll find fair deals and discounts here.
