The 24th annual Spring Fair will return to the Washington State Fair and Events Center from April 18-21.
New this year will be an exhibit called Aussie Kingdom, which will feature three shows throughout the course of the event and showcase kangaroos, wallabies and walleroos, plus other Australian wildlife such as lizards, birds and dragons.
Other new additions include a root beer garden for kids at the KidZone Too! It will be held inside the Red Gate, an area that also will feature face painting and Kids Town America.
In addition, there will be Auto Alley, showcasing the racing world of dragsters, funny cars and more from Pacific Raceways, and the LeMay Family Collection Foundation will display a selection of automobiles.
