Red River Valley Fair app keeps you up to date on everything happening this year
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you really want to maximize your time between the fried foods, fun rides and entertainment, for the first time ever, you can find your way around the fair with your mobile phone.
If you're anything like me, and a lot of people I've seen here today, you probably keep your cell phone within arm’s reach at all times.
Now, between texts and tweets, you can use this to find your favorite attractions, or discover new ones.
With the free mobile app, you can check out a map of the fairgrounds or access a schedule of every day's events and entertainment.
A list food and other vendors can help you decide what to eat now or later.
And also new this year, an interactive scavenger hunt.
Just use the app's clues to find Q-R codes hidden throughout the fair, and enter to win prize packages.
But it's not all fun and games; fair staff says the app can be used to alert fairgoers about severe weather and scheduling changes.
Jodi Buresh/RRVF Assistant Manager: “The general public is probably really looking at it as just a convenience, but it is one of our methods we're using for that emergency preparedness.”
The app can be downloaded in the Apple Store or from Google Play.
If you're into all this tech-y stuff, for the first time this year, you can also purchase fair tickets online.
