Maricopa County Fair open for fun, food

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The Maricopa County Fair is April 10-14 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds at 19th Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix.

April Warnecke gave us a preview of the some of the attractions and, of course, the food, including the chicken on a stick. It's a whole chicken. But the best part of the morning was her live demonstration of a kookaburra call. The bird, which is part of the Aussie Kingdom exhibit, kind of left her hangin'.

The fair is open Wednesday-Thursday 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 10 a.m.-midnight, and Sunday, 10 a.m-10 p.m.

Admission is $9. Parking is $7.
