CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The Jackson County Fair officially opens on Wednesday afternoon. 

When you head out to the Jackson County Expo, you won't have to worry about parking because it's free. Plan to park at Gate 1. There, you will be able to buy fair tickets. Entry tickets can also be bought online, but there will be an additional convenience fee charge. 

If Gate 1 is full, you might have to park a little bit farther at Gate 4.

Any child under the age of twelve will be able to come into the fairgrounds for free. Fair officials are are encouraging parents and kids to take one safety measure before heading into the fairgrounds. 

"When you come through, you'll actually see a place for you to stop and take a photo of your child," said Helen Funk, Jackson County Fair Director. "This is a safety measure that we hope all parents will actually take consideration of. If you stop and take a picture of your child not only do we know how tall they are, we remember what they're wearing."

The Jackson County Fairgrounds also have lots of ways to help keep people cool. There will be misting machines all over the grounds, even near the food trucks and the first aid station. If you want to get out of the sun completely, there are plenty of inside exhibits. 

The Padgham Building is air conditioned. In this building, there will be exhibits featuring quilts, jams and jellies. Brad's World of Reptiles will be in the Mace Watchable Wildlife Building. The Seven Feathers Events Center isn't air conditioned, but it does have swamp coolers. The butterfly exhibit, the brand new rattlesnake exhibit, fair artisans and the toddler zone will be inside that building. 

Even if you are inside and out of the heat, fair officials want to remind people to stay hydrated. 

"The first aid station also offers free water, so if you have a water bottle to fill you can head over there," Funk said. "There's also water around at various places around on the grounds. Mt. Shasta Water is here and they've put up a couple of stations around as well."

The fair will run through Sunday night. On Sunday, entry frees to the fair will be free for everyone.
