LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) — The State Fair of West Virginia is selling discount tickets ahead of the August event.

The 2013 State Fair is set to take place Aug. 9-17. This year’s theme is “Feel the Magic.”

Officials say discounted tickets will be available through the State Fair box office, online or by phone through Aug. 3. Tickets are also available through other locations through the end of July.
