State Fair Starts Today; Discount Days Include $2 Admission

The Colorado State Fair in Pueblo starts today and runs through September 5th (Labor Day) and there’s a list of discount deals here. One of the best ones is Coca-Cola $2 Day on Tuesday with admission, rides, and rodeo tickets for $2.00 each.  Be sure to check out the discount deals page because I think the deals have changed quite a bit this year.

Get the full list of discount days here, and also see the list of free activities at the fair here.

We now need to add a 4th bedroom in order to stay in our home. Naturally, we want to put it in the basement. Will this negatively impact the value of our home?
