Salem, VA - The Salem Fair is well under way. In its 25th year, the fair has become a staple in the Blue Ridge region.
Thursday night marks the third night of the fair. So far it has seen more than 50,000 visitors.
Those in charge of the free event say you can't beat this deal.
"It's a free gate fair, which is really unusual. Most fairs especially of this size, you pay a gate admission and then you wander around and buy stuff. Here you come in for free, you don't pay to park, you don't pay to come in," said Carey Harveycutter, the Salem Fair Manager.
The fairgrounds open at 4 p.m. on weekdays, noon on weekends. The event runs through July 15th.
