The Central Washington State Fair wants to say a big thank you to essential workers by giving away free tickets to the opening night of the Fatbeam Concert Series.

THE TICKETS WILL BE GIVEN AWAY IN A LOTTERY

The fair is  giving away 500 pairs of tickets to Hollywood Swing, a Kool and the Gang Tribute set for Friday, September 24.
“Our frontline workers represent the best of us and we hope this provides a welcome and well-deserved break for those who provided support when we needed it most," said Fatbeam CEO Paul Merritt. "On behalf of Fatbeam, we appreciate all you have given to the Yakima Valley and beyond through your dedication and service. We are proud to be a part of this special event, the Fair, and this community as we celebrate our local heroes."
