GOLD BEACH, Ore. — The people of southern Oregon's coast enjoyed a week of fun at the Curry County Fair with a particularly unique cost of admission.

"Opening day at the Curry County Fair is Wednesday, July 24, and for those who want to enter at no charge, all they have to do is bring a giant cookie depicting the fair theme: 'You Don’t See THAT Every Day,'" fair organizers said.

Acceptable cookies had to be at least 12-inches in diameter. After bringing one of these unconventional confections to the gate for free admission, fair entrants were encouraged to bring the cookie to a "cookie table" in Docia Sweet Hall were it would be put on display with the maker's name and hometown.

The fair entire ran from 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning until Saturday at 10 p.m. at the Event Center in Gold Beach — filled with carnival rides, fair fare, crafts and agricultural exhibits, live music and other performances.

On top of the drive for Cookies of Unusual Size, this year's fair included a scarecrow contest and pie contest, each offering a $100 prize for the winner.
