ARKANSAS STATE FAIR
11 a.m., Arkansas State Fairgrounds. $4-$8.

Just four more days to gorge yourself on funnel cakes and dangerous looking rides at the fer! When should you go? Well, if you're a lady, 18 or older, gate admission is free on Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you're still in K-12th grade, Friday, after 1 p.m., the gate is only $3. If you're a fan of golden-locked former "American Idol" country stars, Bucky Covington, joined by rising country star Easton Corbin, takes the Wendy's Main Stage on Thursday at 7 p.m. Or if you're a fan of Canadian classic rock and know the words to "Hot Girls in Love," Loverboy closes out the main stage schedule at 8 p.m. Friday. But more than anything else, you're gonna want to go to Ridin' in the Rock, the two-night PBR Professional Bull Riders Tour stop at the fair at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights in Barton Coliseum. Tickets range from $10 to $25 and, if purchased in advance via Ticketmaster, include gate admission. Of course, no matter when you go, deep-fried cream cheese and bacon on a stick will be waiting for you.
