Syracuse, NY (WROC) - Diehard fair goers showed up Thursday morning just as the gates opened at the New York State Fair.  Many are excited for the changes to the fair they've heard about over the past year.  Others are just excited to see some old favorites.
The Anson family were the first family through the gates.  They said it was a special moment to share with their kids.  "My parents took us every single year when we were little," explained Brian Anson.  "It was something I wanted to have my kids experience too."

The fair turnstiles open every day at 8:00am.  The last day of the fair is on Labor day.
