LEE COUNTY, Fla.- People flocked to the Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair Monday night for the chance for free admission.
Anyone who brought three cans of non-perishable food got through the gates for free, and could hop on the rides and play games.
All of the food collected went to the Harry Chapin Food Bank.
"It's just kind of our way of giving back to the community because the community helps us with the fair every year," said Kelly Palmer with Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair.
All the money from Monday night's ticket sales will also be donated to the Harry Chapin Food bank.
The fair runs until Sunday, March 3.
