Ten-year-old Caitlynne Morris of Marysville has won this year’s “Golden Ticket” at the Evergreen State Fair, giving her admission for life to future fairs.
As part of the 100-year celebration, the Evergreen State Fair presented the “Golden Ticket” contest, offering one lifetime pass valid for unlimited and free gate admission to the fair.
“This is so great” said Ami Braschler, Caitlynne’s mother.
“She is going to be so excited when she hears the news.” Caitlynne was at school when her mother took the call.
Each fairgoer who used the FairRewards program during the state fair had a chance to win the lifetime ticket.
Caitlynne and her twin sister, Kylie, attended the Evergreen State Fair with their mother on Wednesday, Aug. 27. She received a card at the gate, inserted it into the machine and eventually was randomly selected as the winner.
“It’s exciting that someone so young will have the chance to attend so many fairs with this lifetime pass,” said Tom Teigen, Snohomish County’s Parks and Recreation director. The fairgrounds are part of the county’s parks system. “We look forward to seeing her year after year!”
Upcoming events at the fair ground includes Scary Nights Haunted House, from 7 - 11 p.m. Fridays through Sundays through October
Admission is $13 per person. For information see the Web at www.myspace.com/scarynights.
