Dressing up like a princess? We have booths and games just for the little ones. Refreshments for fair-goers of all ages are available at the Cougar Nectar Bar, where cold drinks are available for purchase with food & drink tickets. Please note that Kids Zone activities and Cougar Nectar Bar accept St. Mary’s tickets only, Tickets are available through the advanced sales ticket form before October 4 or at the information booth.
