The PNE Fair kicks off Saturday with plenty of traditional favourites and a host of new attractions.

Now in its 113th year, the summer fair returns with a full slate of nighttime concerts including TLC and Boyz II Men on opening weekend, all the familiar rides such as the restored wooden roller-coaster, dozens of food kiosks — more on some of the crazy new flavours will be announced soon — the marketplace, shows like duelling pianos and high-divers, and the historic heart of the PNE, the agricultural events.

And TD Bank Group has invested in Fair access for 1,500 disadvantaged youth this year to make the fun more accessible for everyone.

On Fridays, two-for-one admission is being offered to the first 5,000 people who take transit to the PNE in a co-promotion with TransLink.
