The smell of fried food and the sound of screaming riders is only in town for a few more days.

The Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair is ending soon, but if you still want to go, there is time. The fair is located near TIAA Bank Field and general admission is $10.

Aside from the rides and food, there will be live musical performances including Rodney Adkins, Blue Oyster Cult, Mama Blue and DJ EL.

Specials have been going on all week, but on Thursday, Nov. 8 people who pay for general admission can pay $20 for an unlimited mechanical ride armband. Plus, Friday, Nov. 9 is Military Appreciation Night. Those with a valid military ID and their dependents will receive free general admission and can purchase a ride armband for $10.

Finally, Sunday, Nov. 11 is the last day and anyone can purchase an armband for $25.
