State Fair offers new promotions, entertainment

The 2015 Kentucky State Fair is offering new promotions and discounts and a stronger concert lineup after low attendance caused the attraction to lose money last year.
    
The Courier-Journal reports changes include two $20 carload days and more ways to get cheaper admission, parking and ride tickets in advance.
    
Also new this year: the introduction of the "Philly Cheesesteak donut burger" and a healthy food tent offering salads and wraps. New entertainment includes an extra day of the horse show and a new Christian music festival.
    
The 2014 fair saw its lowest attendance in 30 years and a loss of about $460,000.
    
The fair begins Thursday and runs through Aug. 30.
