2. Good points.
Ann Arbor is a great fair. I go almost every year. It is an all day affair, so do leave the furpals and really young kids at home if you can. They won't appreciate the fair, and you will be able to enjoy it more also.
The shuttles are wonderful. They run all day, on schedule, and are very inexpensive.
I'd like to add an idea if the weather is rainy...leave the umbrella at home, or if you can't stand the thought of getting wet, please be careful. I can't count the number of times I've been "assaulted" unintentionally by umbrella devotees.
The weekend days are the busiest.
If it's hot, it's double-hot at the fair, so keep hydrated. There's lots of places to buy water, soda, lemonade, etc.
Bring a full wallet, or build up your self-control before you go. You will find many temptations in a very wide variety of mediums!
If I go this year, I'll look you up, 1gobluedem!
