Atlanta Fair lets kids read for free rides

This year, the Atlanta Fair is offering free admission to children for finding love in literature.

In an effort to improve literacy among young students, the fair introduced its Read for Rides Program, which, according to a news release, encourages children ages 2-11 to complete a book report for each book they read.

One complete book report means a guaranteed blue ribbon — and in turn, free admission on Reading Rides Day on Saturday, March 12.

Book reports can be downloaded and filled out here. An adult over the age of 18 must approve the entry form.

Once your child has completed the book report, visit and use the promo code READ to receive free admission to one of the state's biggest fairs.

Be sure to not only print out your child's fair ticket, but also bring along a printed copy of the book report to the Grey Lot at Turner Field — where the fair is located — before 8 p.m. on March 12 to receive free entry.
