The 50th State Fair kicks off this weekend at Aloha Stadium and runs through June 25.
Highlights include the Anastasini Circus, monster truck demos (June 8-18), Pork Chop Review, the new Altervision 3D Blacklight experience, and new rides like Speed (May 26 to June 25) and Seven Seas (arriving June 8).
Donna Smith from E.K. Fernandez Shows gave Living808’s Mikey Monis a behind-the-scenes tour of the last-minute preparations.
“The fair has evolved over the years,” Smith said. “It’s a little bit of old nostalgia. It’s always something new, and it’s always a place where people create multi-generational memories and fun at the fair.”
