Since we moved to upstate New York 3 years ago, it has been tradition to go to the Great New York State Fair. We have been three years in a row and this year will mark our fourth. My family knows that it will be a good time, and my young daughters look forward to it. Check out my kid friendly favorites and my guide to the NYSF food if you are heading there this year. This year, the Great New York State Fair is joining forces with Paw Patrol! When I saw this, I just knew my daughters would flip out – they love that show!
The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will visit the Fair from Friday, September 2 to Sunday, September 4. The best part? There is no charge to take part in the tour. You better bet that we will be sure to take the girls one of the days it is there! The fully interactive tour, inspired by PAW Patrol, features an 18-wheel semi-truck PAW Patroller that opens to reveal a life-sized PAW Patrol Headquarters, which kids can walk through. Within the PAW Patroller experience, there are interactive games, a life-sized Lookout Tower (with working periscopes) and a slide to take kids on to the next mission. The tour includes activations featuring two new segments launching this fall – Jungle Rescue and Roll Patrol. PAW Patrol fans can take photos in the Jungle area featuring the new pup tracker, then ride on life-size Roll Patrol racers around a track, and finish their day by taking a photo with PAW Patrol pups – Chase, Marshall, Skye and Rubble.
In case you don’t know, PAW Patrol is an animated action-adventure preschool series starring a pack of six heroic pups led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. He leads a team of rescue-themed pups who save the day through teamwork, bravery and humor. The program delivers parent-approved life lessons through the pups’ playful misadventures. PAW Patrol, created by Spin Master, made its U.S. debut on Nickelodeon in August 2013 and has been picked up for a fourth season to launch later this year.
“We’re very happy to be one of the limited number of stops on PAW Patrol’s national tour. I know youngsters will enjoy getting up close to some of their favorite TV characters, and parents will enjoy the message of cooperation and service to others,” said Troy Waffner, Acting Fair Director.
“The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour is the ultimate immersive experience for PAW Patrol fans of all ages,” said Tara Tucker, VP Global Marketing Communications, Spin Master Ltd. “We invite everyone to experience it at the Great New York State Fair and to follow the tour through PAW Patrol’s social media channels.”
The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will support Canine Companions. The non-profit organization enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly-trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.
The New York State Fair, operated by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, runs from August 25 to September 5, 2016. The Fair’s mission, reflected in its theme, “Find Your GREAT!,” is to showcase the best of New York agriculture while providing top-quality entertainment.
