HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's the perfect setting for a night of family fun or a romantic carnival date: The 50th State Fair!

The fair opened its six-weekend run on the grounds of Aloha Stadium Friday.

The classic fair food, games and attractions returned, but this year E.K. Fernandez Shows is introducing three new rides.

Rockin' Tug, an ocean-themed kiddie ride; Zero Gravity, a dizzying whirl of G-forces; and the most intimidating looking of them all — a ride deemed "Black Out."

Two of the rides are already open to the public, but Black Out arrives at the Fair on June 15.
