We're giving away another great prize courtesy of Classic Amusements. This week's draw is for a Family Outing Package to the Italian Week Fair, which runs on Saturday and Sunday this weekend (June 18-19) at  the Adult High School Parking Lot (Preston @ the Queensway).  The fair is part of the larger Ottawa Italian Week event in Little Italy, June 9-19.

Each prize pack includes:
  • 2 all-you-can-ride bracelets (for the kids) 
  • 30 ride tickets (for mom & dad) 
  • 2 bags of cotton candy 
  • 1 large bag of popcorn 
  • (Please note - prize pack can only be redeemed on Saturday.)
It's a great idea for a family outing -- but if you don't have kids, you can still win and take some friends or make it a date night.

  1. Breakdance is my favourite funfair ride :)

  2. My favorite food is cotton candy

  3. My favourite fair ride is the outhouse...or at least it's one of the only ones where I don't fall off.

    The best part is feeling like a kid again and forgetting everything else ;)

  5. My favourite thing about a fair is the look of excitement in my kids' eyes as they take in the sights! I love the photo opportunities (and you know I share!).

    My favoutie ride was Roundup, where the floor drops and you are held in by centrifigal force. Now it's a toss up between the Merry-go-round and bumper cars!

  7. I have to say, I just love fair food! Candy apples and super salty popcorn!
