PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona State Fair in Phoenix is closing its run with a wedding.

Fair organizers say Rhonda Hitchcock and Dereck Mast will get married at the fairgrounds at 5 p.m. Sunday, which is the fair's final day.

The couple, who attends the State Fair every fall, has been planning the event for two years.

The festivities will include 10 bridesmaids and the bride and groom getting photos taken on the carousel and ferris wheel.

After exchanging vows on the Wallace & Ladmo Stage, they and about 175 guests will feast on typical fair foods, including corn dogs.

The State Fair opened Oct. 10.
