Oregon State Fair Photos - Year 2000
Use this NEXT VIEW link to see the photos in sequence, starting at the Main Gate heading north. Or select views from the photos below. The Oregon State Fair is a good time!
In the early 1990's, the Oregon State Fair added a chairlift that bisects the fairgrounds north and south. These photos (50K-60K each) were taken Saturday, August 31, 1996...at 12:15 p.m. going north, and 3:30 p.m. heading south.
This is a fun, relaxing way to see the fairground's layout. You can also people-watch, whiff sweet BBQ from the many food booths below, and spot places to visit later. The ten-minute ride travels at an altitude of about 50 feet. Chairs seat two adults (and a young child). Tickets cost $2.50 one-way, or $3.00 for a roundtrip anytime (2000).
