The entire News 9 team is excited to once again be a part of the Oklahoma State Fair!
We will be out at the fairgrounds every day through September 23 under the big white tent just inside Gate 1 on the north end of State Fair Park.
Visit the booth between 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. for a chance to meet some of your favorite News 9 anchors, reporters, meteorologists and storm trackers. We'll also have a fantastic selfie station - plus a unique SnapChat filter - so you can share the experience with your friends and family.
You are also encouraged to join us in the fight against childhood hunger by donating to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids program. One in four children in Oklahoma is chronically hungry and just $1 can provide five meals to those in need. Remember no cash donation is too small!
With your cash donation, you can place it in the box of the News 9 anchor you would like to see kiss a pig!! That’s right, when you visit the booth, drop your donation into the anchor boxes to cast your vote on who you want to see pucker up!
All visitors at the News 9 booth 18 years of age or younger can play the News 9 Prize Wheel to win great free prizes. Also, adults who donate $3.00 or more to the Food for Kids initiative can spin the wheel for their own News 9 gear plus enter to win our Gas Giveaway Contest for a chance to win $1,000 in gas courtesy of OnCue. All proceeds benefit the Food for Kids Program.
There's plenty to do out at the fair, so bring your family and friends and enjoy the rides, exhibits, sights, sounds and tastes of the 2018 Oklahoma State Fair!
