It’s opening day at the Ohio State Fair and a mob of Ohio Lottery staffers are here for Ohio Lottery Day. We will be on hand at the Celeste Center to videotape two episodes of our award-winning game show, Cash Explosion, and everyone at the fair is invited. Come on in for prizes and lots of fun. Doors will open at 1:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. for the two tapings. While you’re waiting, check out the Lottery spin-n-wins just outside the Celeste Center.
Our Director, Kathy Burke, will be the grand marshall in the State Fair parade at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, so if you’re on the grounds, drop by and give her a wave.
On Friday, we’ll host a dance-off between our old friends, the Mega Millions ball and the Power ball. You’ll be able to choose sides and show your support for one or the other, and you might even get to join in the dancing. Come on over to the Rhodes Center lawn (near the Skyglider) and check it out at 3 p.m. Friday. Then, on Saturday, in the Rhodes Center, local scholars will compete in the Ohio Lottery sponsored State Fair Spelling Bee. Three divisions – 3rd and 4th graders, 5th and 6th graders and 7th and 8th graders, will compete for prizes that include savings bonds, dictionaries and all-day wristbands for rides at the fair.
We love having a presence at the Ohio State Fair, and we’d love for you to come out and say hi. Just look for us at the Celeste Center on Wednesday, outside the Rhodes Center on Friday and inside the Rhodes Center on Saturday. And of course, while you’re there, you’ll be able to purchase Lottery products inside the Marketplace Building at a booth manned by one of our great retailers, Whitehall Shell. Between 5-6 p.m. on every day at the fair, take advantage of this special offer: Purchase $5 in Powerball wagers and receive a $1 Rolling Cash 5 ticket free!
We hope to see you there!
