Zombies and Freaks at the fair

The Annual Capital Fair (formerly Gloucester Fair) is a 10 day event in August with events such as monster trucks, midway games and rides, food etc.
... in 2014, moving to a 10 day event in August The Fair still invites you to come see, smell and taste real competition BBQ delights at the D&S Southern Comfort BBQ Restaurant's "Smoked to the Bone" BBQ competition.  Roam amongst the smokers and grills where you can talk sauce, ask for advice, taste samples and vote in the People's Choice Award or jump right in and enter the Fair's Amateur Chicken and Rib Competition and see where your backyard rubs and sauce really stand. 
...The World's Finest Midway features the Scooter, the Scrambler, Fireball and much more, all for the low price all-day ride bracelet price of $20. - from the website

Zombie Night by the Midway LightMore info here.

This year they are hosting a zombie night. Arrive in costume and terrorize the fair, ride the ferris wheel and eat far too much food. The Zombie event is organized by the same group that organizes the annual Ottawa Zombie Walk.

What else is happenning? Freakfest. Which I can only assume consists of sideshow-like acts and freaky performances. Could be interesting...

Where? (same place!)
Rideau-Carleton Raceway
4837 Albion Rd
Gloucester, Ontario

I believe tickets to the fair are $36 (but currently 50% off if you buy online). However, the ride bracelets seem to be sold separately for $20 ??? That doesn't seem right but I'd definitely double check that before going if you want to ride rides. Visit the Capital Fair site for more info:

I'm not sure if I'll go, but it looks like fun. Will you be attending? Which day/event would you rather attend?
